Itâ€™s 1922 and business is booming for Saul and Lou Sugarmanâ€” thanks to prohibition. But business gets personal when the Sugarmansâ€™ brother-in-law ends up dead. Looking for answers, private detective Sam Klein is called in to investigate.
What appears to be nothing more than a deal-gone-bad quickly spirals out of control to threaten Samâ€™s own family. How can Sam prevent his loved ones from becoming enmeshed in a bootlegger turf war thatâ€™s bigger than even he can imagine?
