In 1950 Kansas City, two criminal syndicates fighting for a piece of the American dream have struck an uneasy peace.
Together, they control an alternate economy of exploitation, graft and drugs.
To cement their truce, Loy Cannon (Chris Rock), the head of the African American crime family, trades his youngest son Satchel, to his enemy Donatello Fadda, the head of the Italian mafia.
In return, Donatello surrenders his youngest son Zero to Loy.
When Donatello dies in the hospital following a routine surgery, the tenuous truce is threatened.
Josto Fadda (Jason Schwartzman) takes up his father's mantle, but his efforts to stabilise the organisation are undermined by his brother, Gaetano, who has joined the family in Kansas City after building a reputation for ruthlessness in Italy.
The other Fadda men - including Ebal Violante, Constant Calamita and Antoon Dumini - must decide where their loyalties lie.
Amongst the turmoil, Patrick "Rabbi" Milligan (Ben Whishaw), a man who once betrayed his own family to serve the Italians, watches carefully to ensure his survival.
Sensing an opportunity, Loy tests the Faddas for weakness, deploying his most trusted advisor, Doctor Senator (Glynn Turman), and top lieutenants, Leon Bittle, Omie Sparkman and Opal Rackley to do his bidding.
However, to Loy's dismay, his oldest son Lemuel Cannon wants no part of the family business.
Intertwined with this tale of immigration, assimilation and power, is the story of Ethelrida Pearl Smutny, the precocious 16-year-old daughter of Thurman and Dibrell Smutny, an interracial couple who own their own mortuary.
Other stories include that of U.S. Marshal Dick "Deafy" Wickware (Timothy Olyphant), a Mormon lawman; Detective Odis Weff (Jack Huston), the Kansas City cop known for his compulsive tics; and Oraetta Mayflower (Jessie Buckley), a nurse who cannot abide others' suffering.
