Since they were in the same position not too long ago. Ganzo says that the he has guts, so the don is bound to like him. As Orco sits on the couch eating chips, Testa says that the Family doesn't need someone with guts, but someone who thinks deeply and sees far. Annoyed, Ganzo complains that Testa lectures at the drop of the hat.
Ganzo tells Orco to say something. Still eating, Orco says that he's just an outsider. He looks down at his hands and says that if they aren't happy, just break off and start anew. Still fiddling with the camera, Ganzo asks what it is. Testa says that it's a new toy as a doorbell rings. Ganzo says that he's there and gets up. He says that he's sure they'll like him as well. Vince extends his hand to Testa and introduces himself.
Testa looks at his hand but doesn't take it. He says he's Testa Lagusa as Vince puts his hand down. Still sitting on the couch, Ganzo introduces Orco and says that he's serving under their family for now.
Orco greets him in Italian and Vince nods at him. Ganzo says that the Don is out but suggests they kill time with cards. Orco complains about being hungry, so Ganzo tells him to eat his foot. Vince asks if he should have brought refreshments. Testa says that it would have suited their childish game. Ganzo asks what part of Italy Vince is from and he answers Savoca, Italy. Testa asks if he migrated because of the economic crisis.
Vince said that he heard it was prosperous in America. Orco says that he should be a farmer in South Dakota to become a farmer. Gonzo asks if he went to Chicago to try the family there. Vince asks if he means the Galassias. He says that he did but they turned him away. Ganzo says that they put on a lot of airs over there, and you can't join without connection.
Testa says they should do the same, but "someone" just brings in strangers without knowing where they're from. Vince gets up and puts his coat on the hanger. Vince says that he didn't expect to be welcomed so kindly, but Orco says that no one is and he should realize that.
Smiling, Testa raises his bet, so Ganzo and Orco fold. Smiling, Ganzo suggests that Vince does as well. He says that Testa only plays of it's a sure win, so Vince will lose everything if he's not careful. Testa says that he can extend a loan if he has to go to South Dakota. Vince asks if he can borrow money. The two are taken back and Orco scolds him. Testa asks if he's married. Vince says he is. Testa says that they deal in prostitution as well and, if he can't clear his debt, they'll put his wife to work.
Vince says he can. Ganzo throws in money and he tells Orco to do the same. Orco is annoyed and says that, if he can't return it, he'll have the first go at his wife. Looking unfazed, Vince says he'll get it back with interest. He turns to Testa and raises. The two stare at eachother before Testa smiles and then folds. The two are shocked and congratulate him.
Testa doesn't look happy as he puts his money on the pile. Vince says he doesn't need the money but wants to join the family. Ganzo says that he's the real deal. Testa refuses and says that someone who takes risks with such high stakes will only bring danger to the Family. Ganzo is annoyed and says that he's just bitter. Vince interrupts him and says that's fine, but he wasn't just taking a high stakes risk as he looks behind Testa. Testa turns to find a mirror behind him.
As Vince put his coat on the hook, he adjusted the mirror that was there. Vince says that he couldn't make out the numbers, so he was waiting for him to bluff with a flush. Orco is astounded but Ganzo is furious at his cheating and begins to scold him. Testa raises his hand for him to stop and he stands from his chair and walks in front of Vince. He smiles and extends his hand, saying that he thinks they'll make a good team. Ganzo is surprised, but Testa reminds him that he was just saying they need someone cunning.
As the sun sets, Testa asks Orco to take a picture of them. Orco again complains that he's hungry and suggests they have lasagna. Testa narrates that "A raison d'etre gives a person power. Friendship is a more reliable tool than a knife. Testa says "It's nice to meet you, Vince. At a small church in , a small group of people stand outside chatting. Vince says that a doctor's seen to her and there hasn't been any change.
Ganzo Alary tells him that if he carries on in the same way, his children will be bored to tears. Vince asks what he means, and Ganzo tells him to take them out once and a while. He says that just because their mother can't, doesn't mean the kids can't walk. Ganzo lights a cigarette and Vince says that that's the reason he brings them to mass. Ganzo says that if he insists on just making them do what he wants, it's going to backfire on him someday. Vince turns away from him and tells him that it's none of his business.
Ganzo exhales smoke and seems to notice someone. He waves at the Lagusa family and Testa waves back. Angelo walks beside a stroller that his mother is pushing. Vince asks and Ganzo tells him that Testa had his second child: Luce. As the family happily walks into the church, Vince says that he's had enough of Testa's stubbornness.
Ganzo scolds him and tells him that there aren't many as loyal as him in the mafia. Vince says that his mafia family comes second to his real family.
Ganzo says that that is true. He says that when Testa drove away the Galassia messenger a while back, it scared him. Vince says that Testa won't like it, but it's high time they made peace with the Galassias for the family. He takes money out of an envelope and puts it in his pocket. He notices the picture before saying that he can't stick around and tossing back in the drawer and closing it. As he's about to leave he hears his mother coughing and turns toward her door.
The maid yells that she'll bring the medicine and water right away. Nero goes into her room and closes the door. Around , Angelo, Corteo, and the rest of the Lagusa family go on a picknick. Elena had woken a lot earlier than us and made everything. They drive to a man-made forest together. Luce protests, but Elena stays firm and brings him along. At this age, Angelo could still carry Luce in his arms.
Luce had grown tired just earlier and demanded to be carried, but Elena told him to walk properly and refused now that he was a little older, saying being carried is for babies. Angelo tells this to Corteo, telling him that, though he was relieved of his burden, he felt it was sad.
Corteo laughs at him, saying he's jealous since he was an only child. Angelo replies that he and Luce are like his brothers.
At that, Corteo smiled happily, but didn't seem to believe him. Luce suggests that they go on an adventure as he takes his hand and pulls him towards the forest. It was still too early to have lunch, and Luce was full of energy. When they look at the flora, Luce picks up a poisonous mushroom, so Corteo warns him.
Luce finds a berry and asks if it's poisonous. As soon as Corteo says no, Luce quickly plops the sour berry into his mouth. Immediately, he made a face and spat it out. Corteo looked on despairingly and Angelo fumbles around in his pockets. He holds out a sweet candy wrapped in thin paper.
Elena calls the three boys, and they look at one another, grinning. When Luce gave the signal, the three started to run. Luce was giving it his all, but the two older boys were naturally running alongside him. He was anxious, preparing to support him if he fell over. Testa waits next to them with his arms open. As Angelo slowed down, locks eyes with Corteo. Though Corteo tells him to go ahead, Angelo grabs his arm and pulls him into the hug as well.
Testa catches both of them and pats their heads cheerfully. On a rainy day, Avilio Bruno walks home. By his door, a group of old women stand in a circle, talking. As he starts to walk up his stairs, his landlord tells him that she received a letter to his address, though it's to Angelo Lagusa.
Though he was walking away as she said this, he runs back and snatches it out of her hand without saying anything. He then turns to go back to his apartment. After he closes the door, the landlord says that he's creepy and that she can't tell if he's alive or dead.
In his barren room, Angelo throws his wet clothes on the back of a chair and sits down on a chair. There are empty cans of pineapple in the room, one filled with cigarette butts. He pulls his wallet out of his pocket and takes some money out. Afterwards, he throws it under his bed in a pile of them. After this, he pulls the envelope and looks at it.
He takes out a pocket knife and opens it. It contains a picture of his younger brother, Luce and a letter. Avilio says "Vanetti At the Lagusa household, two bikes are parked outside. The same photo from the letter sits on the mantle. Luce is about to pinch the flame on a candle, but stops himself and asks Corteo if it really isn't hot. Corteo explains that it isn't, because it's actually the paraffin burning. Excited, Luce tells him to do it to show him.
Corteo is taken back, and looks uncomfortable. He bends down and goes to touch it. Angelo watches, smiling, as he taps on the table. As he is about to touch it, though, he pulls his hand back, scared. He is about to again but hesitates.
Angelo puts it out instead. Luce is overjoyed and asks if it really wasn't hot. Angelo says that it's true and Angelo agrees and shows him to look at his hand. Luce asks again, amazed and Angelo answers happily again.
Corteo too looks amazed at his bravery. In the kitchen, Elena Lagusa cuts something up. Corteo says that he better get going. Luce says that they should have cake together first. Corteo says maybe next time. As Corteo puts on his coat, Luce says that cake is tasty. Angelo says that they're nothing Corteo can do about it and Luce accepts this. Elena comes out of the kitchen with a container. She slips it into Corteo's bag and tells him to share it with his mother.
She also takes out some money and says that it isn't much before slipping it into his bag. Corteo looks embarrassed and thanks her for everything.
Elena helps him put his scarf on and asks how she's doing. Corteo hesitates but then smiles and says that she's been doing a lot better lately. Elena says she's happy to hear that.
Across the room, Luce has begun playing with the candle as Angelo stares at them talking. Outside, Luce says goodbye to Corteo and Corteo does the same. Luce then closes the door and Corteo and Angelo walk down the steps.
Corteo asks Angelo if he'd ever put out a candle with his fingers before. Angelo shakes his head no. Snow begins to fall lightly and the two look up. Corteo is surprised, since it's already April. In a parked car, someone ashes a cigarette as a car drives by them. On his bike, Corteo smiles and says goodbye and happy birthday to Angelo.
They do their special wave to each other and Corteo rides away. Angelo hears his fathers car and, smiling, runs into the house. On the road, Testa Lagusa slows down to wave at Corteo and they wave at each other. After the two depart, the second car full of men starts up their car and goes in the same direction as Testa. The two brothers hide together, smiling in a closet facing their front door. Luce tells his brother not to make a sound. Their father walks in and takes off his hat and Elena meets him there.
He asks where they are and Elena says that he should call them and see. Smiling, he calls them and then begins looking as the two quietly laugh from their closet.
Suddenly, Vincent Vanetti loudly knocks on the door and tells him to open up. Luce is disappointed but Angelo tells him not to worry, because he'll leave soon. Testa lets Vince , Nero , and Vanno Clemente inside and Testa asks if he wants a drink, noting that he doesn't usually come there.
Vince refuses this, and tells him to listen calmly. Vince says that their don has been taken out. Facing a drawer, though he was about to take out a bottle opener, he instead grabs a pocket knife. He then asks if it was Orco 's men. Vanno and Nero look at each other. Vince pulls out his gun and points it at Testa. He says that it was himself.
Luce is about to cry out in the closet, but Angelo puts his hand over his mouth and tells him to be quiet because they'll leave soon. With tears in his eyes, Luce pulls his brother's hand from his mouth and watches on. Vince says that it's to protect the family. Testa is mad, after everything the don has done for Vince. Vince says that he's wrong and that he doesn't understand anything. Testa says that if he'd investigated, he'd know how much got back to the Galassias.
Vince says that that's enough and tells him to give him the ledger. Testa tells him that it isn't there, it's at the bank. Vince gets mad and demands the ledger immediately. Dropping to her knees, Elena begs Vince to stop. He turns around and clocks her with his gun. Angelo and Luce both witness this, and though he grabs at his shirt, Angelo is unable to stop Luce from running from the closet.
Testa calls out to his wife. Luce runs out to his mother and they hug on the ground. Nero and Vanno are now pulling their guns on the two as well. Luce asks if she's okay. As the three men are now distracted, Testa pulls out his knife and stabs Vince through his right hand. He tries to stab him again, but merely slashes the left side of his face and the knife flies behind him and Vince falls to the ground. The two other men have their guns pointed at him and he looks at Vanno before three shots are fired.
In the closet, Angelo begins to cry and Elena tells Luce not to look. Elena tells Vince to spare her son. She swears that he won't tell anyone. Vince tells her to listen carefully, and says that he would never forget about them as long as he lives. Four shots are fired and blood is spattered on their mantle.
The three men stand over the pair's bodies and Vanno kneels as he crosses himself. Vince asks if they have anything to wipe up with.
Vanno pulls a handkerchief and hands it to him. Nero starts to walk away and Vince says that they'll look upstairs and Nero downstairs. Nero walks into the room with the closet and cocks his gun, nervous. He opens the other door to it and is relieved to find nothing there. He enters a room to the side of a closet.
Under the couch, Angelo covers his mouth as he hides, scared. Once he's in the other room, Angelo leaves the room. There his father lays in a pool of blood and his mother and brother lie dead in each other's arms. Angelo begins to tear-up but a door behind him closes and he begins running out the door.
Angelo leaps off his step. Violence is used when it makes sense. But violence is not the story. People, the cops, homies and civilians, are the story. They lie to over-worked US personnel and are granted asylum.
