The control of the Mafia "table" is still the bone of contention between rival mobsters Cerrico (Robert Davi) and Grosset (John Snyder). Grosset conspires with another high-profile criminal named Spoletta (Michael Chiklis) to take out Cerrico, along with exiled mob chieftan Aiuppo (George O. Petrie) and Aiuppo's heir apparent Vinnie (Ken Wahl) (actually an undercover federal agent). Meanwhile, Cerrico takes Vinnie into his confidence regarding his heroin-dealing activities--inadvertently handing Vinnie a golden opportunity to end the Mafia turf war and topple the entire mob in one fell swoop.
