"Real Gangsters" tells the story of the Lo Giacamo family, one of the most successful crime syndicates in New York City, run by cousins Vincent (Nick Mancuso) and Jack Lo Giacamo (Frank D'Angelo). "Real Gangsters" shows how these two men maintain control of their dangerous extended family and volatile business ventures by very different means. Vincent is the politician, the man who always has a plan to help keep the peace, find common ground, bind blood and commerce, and grow the family into a billion-dollar empire. Jack is the muscle, the hot head; ruthless and uncompromising, he lives in the moment and executes his actions based on how he feels. Unfortunately for these two men, these two philosophies don't always work together. Jack enforces his code of duty and honor with a brutal finality that sometimes destroys Vincent's creative scheming. Jack also finds himself unexpectedly protecting the underdogs in his neighborhood, which sometimes creates more trouble for him than it's worth. Vincent makes deals with rival families knowing that money is the glue that keeps the peace, avoids problems with law enforcement, and builds a future. But having to turn the other cheek drives Jack mad when it sells out his personal integrity, and often he can't do it. Somehow the cousins get through each day, keep their enemies guessing, and keep business booming. "Real Gangsters" is an adrenaline rush. A constant rollercoaster ride of classic crime, class acts, and the thrill that comes from living life on the edge, one day at a time, when at any moment you could need to put your life on the line to serve and protect the family.
