This film is a gangster version of Shakespeare`s "Julius Caesar". It is set in the modern world of organized crime. It is shot in black and white to recall the gangster-noir movies of the 30`s and 40`s. Shakespeare`s language has been preserved with just a few edits to fit the context of the film. As Caesar is about to be made the new "don", Cassius convinces Brutus, Caesar`s most trusted friend, to join a conspiracy to assassinate him because he has become too "ambitious".
