- As a poor Irish-Italian growing up in 1950s New York City, Henry Hill rises through the ranks of his Brooklyn neighborhood's crime branch, and with money from the mob he begins living the good life, complete with a beautiful bride, a fancy home, and the best seats at the most exclusive restaurants.
