The movie is a look at the formative years of New Jersey gangster, Tony Soprano. I guess it’s a sort of prequel that will follow a young Tony Soprano as he grows up in Newark, New Jersey, during the 1960s and 1970s.
Young Anthony Soprano is growing up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark’s history, becoming a man just as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family’s hold over the increasingly race-torn city. Caught up in the changing times is the uncle he idolizes, Dickie Moltisanti, who struggles to manage both his professional and personal responsibilities—and whose influence over his nephew will help make the impressionable teenager into the all-powerful mob boss we’ll later come to know: Tony Soprano.
