Summary
It is the late 1940s in New York and "Don" Vito Corleone is the head of a powerful Mafia "family." His youngest son Michael had defied Vito by enlisting in the Marines to fight in World War II. Michael has returned with no intention of continuing the family business, but after several assassination attempts on his father's life, Michael wants revenge on the men responsible. He is groomed as the new don, leading the family to a new era of prosperity, then launching a campaign of murderous revenge against those who once tried to wipe out his family
