Fighting over illegal booze and who can take over the whole city, Capone and Moran goes all out with a bloodfest gangwar full of setups of both sides, leaving less time for negoitating and little more action. Their whole life is not entirely involves around their businesses; gambling and their involvment in the prostiution ring to add a little spice to their life as well.

But on Feburary 14 1929 on a cold wintry day Capone will reveal a secret plot that will shake Chicago and definitely send the roaring twenties in a "uproar".
