Vito Corleone is the aging don of the Corleone Mafia Family. Michael, his youngest son, has returned from WWII in time to see the wedding of his sister Connie to Carlo Rizzi. All of Michael's family is involved with the Mafia, but Michael just wants to live a normal life. Drug dealer Virgil Sollozzo is looking for a family to offer him protection in exchange for a profit of the drug money. He approaches Don Corleone about it, but, he is morally against the use of drugs, and turns down the offer. This does not please Sollozzo, who has the Don shot down by some of his hit men. The Don barely survives, which leads his son Michael to begin a violent mob war against Sollozzo and tears the Corleone family apart.
