Hackney: 1960. In a London dominated by the violent rule of organised crime, three dynasties are drawn together as suitors vie to woo, wed and bed the wealthy daughters of gangland boss Baptista Minola. The eldest is as vicious as the youngest is beautiful, so naturally their mother has decreed the youngest must marry first. Enter Pete, marriage on his mind, tailed by the Kray twins; young in their careers and at his side… Whether or not you know how the story ends, the journey will be different from any before taken.
