Hoodlum plot

"Power is measured in enemies."

Harlem, 1934. The Great Depression. The 'Queen' earns her money from betting and lotteries. When white mobster Dutch Schultz sees how much money can be made with this, he tries to take over her business. Bumpy Johnson puts a stop to this, first as a bodyguard, later as her closest confidant. When the "Queen" goes to jail, Bumpy takes over. His reign gains Robin Hood-like fame when he lets some of the money he earns flow back into the pockets of the poor black population. He soon finds Dutch Schultz on his way again. While the blood flows more and more freely between the two gangsters, Lucky Luciano tries to bring the parties together. However, a deadly and violent gang war seems unavoidable.
