GoodFellas is Henry Hill's story, telling in fascinating, brutal detail, the day-to-day life of a working mobster - violence, wild spending sprees, his wife, his mistress, his code of honour. Henry Hill knows where a lot of bodies are buried, and he turned into a Federal witness to save his own life. The mob is still hunting him for what he revealed: hundreds of crimes including arson, extortion, hijacking and the six-million dollar Lufthansa heist, the most successful cash robbery in US history which led to ten murders.
