Lou Sciortino’s life in Sicily is not quite what his New York granddad had in mind. In metropolitan Catania there’s more to risk at a neighbourhood barbecue than in a dark street – especially when Uncle Sal Scali is involved. The Don decides he doesn’t like the way things are shaping up for his grandson, and decides it’s time he paid one last visit to the old country. That’s when the bullets really start to fly.
