In 1946, a young man by the name of Jimmy Fratianno moved from Cleveland, Ohio to Los Angeles, California. Fratianno had spent most of his life immersed in crime, crossing paths with several well known mobsters. Fratianno would soon become a made man in the Los Angeles crime family, gaining a reputation as someone who was willing to do "whatever it takes" to get the job done. But as the landscape of the LA crime family changed, so did Fratianno’s status. Disagreements with high ranking members would put his life in danger, leading Fratianno to make a life-changing decision.
