    After a hit is placed on young Al Capone’s life while working as a bouncer in Brooklyn, he escapes to Chicago to start life over working for avuncular, non-drinking bootlegger Johnny Terrio. When dapper Terrio discovers his new protégé is a crude, impulsive and non-educated thug, Terrio lays down the law: either Capone enroll in night school and earn his GED or he will be banished back to a lethal fate in Brooklyn. Inspired by a little known fact about Al Capone, this is the origin story of his year in night school, his relationship with his beautiful, suffragette Irish teacher and how education gave Capone the tools to create the American myth we know today.
