Filmmaker Gary Jenkins was a Kansas City Police Detective in the 1970s. He was assigned to a task force dedicated to bringing down the La Cosa Nostra family in Kansas City, Missouri. After retirement Gary started making documentary films. In this feature length documentary Gary interviews retired F.B.I. agents, Kansas City Police officers, K.C. Star reporters and other witnesses to the events that led to the demise of the Civella Family. Gary was able to access the F.B.I. archives and recovered over 100 of the actual audio tapes from the many wiretaps and secret microphones installed by the feds during this investigation. The viewer will hear the voice of the boss, Nick Civella, discuss mob problems and plans with underboss Carl “Tuffy” DeLuna, Consigliere Carl “Cork” Civella and other mob  underlings. Hear Chicago Outfit Capo Joseph “Joey the Clown” Lombardo tell casino owner, Morris Shenker, that if he wants to live to age 73, he better pay up.
