DescriptionAt the height of the roaring twenties, the daughter of a mafia boss is determined to rise to prominence in her family's business.
Nicoletta is the youngest in a Sicilian-American family and has aspirations to join her brothers in the family business--an organized crime syndicate running the streets of Brooklyn. But when Nicoletta confronts her father Tommaso and announces her desire to join the family business, Tommaso objects, and a crisis ensues. Nicoletta takes it upon herself to prove she has what it takes, moving steadfastly into a world of brutality with her own ideas to capitalize on the cocaine drug trade. What transpires is not just a tale of a woman's rise within the Marchesi crime family but a genre-busting look at how the players in this mafia story are transformed when Nicoletta proves better at the deadly game than her male coworkers. New York has a new player in town, and they ain't seen nothing yet! Combining the romanticism of the roaring twenties and Nicoletta's journey into the brazen violence of mafia-dominated New York, Mafiosa sets the status quo ablaze--with style, class, and a smoking barrel.
