Giuseppe Fiorenti, the capo di tutti capi of the New York syndicate, convinces the godfathers of the five boroughs to invest in a new enterprise--an opulent hotel for the ultra-rich to be built at the Henderson Executive Airport. An adult arcade with a five-star restaurant rounds out their plans. Cash only. The five godfathers need a legitimate business in order to avoid RICO problems with the Feds and to put away tax-free money for their retirement. Giuseppe recommends his son, Salvatore ( Torre ) to be the CEO of the new enterprise - Hangar #3 - because Torre is clean as a whistle, has a law degree from Harvard, an MBA from the University of Chicago, and is a VP of a multi-national Wall Street firm. Torre is the perfect straight guy who has never been involved in Mob activities. Construction is barely underway when the Chicago mob and the Las Vegas mob start muscling in to get their piece of the action and the people that Torre cares about most get hurt. Torre learns how to dispense justice to the wrongdoers his own way -- smart and swift - the style of the mafia's new generation. Hangar #3 is a mob story, a love story, a could only happen in Vegas story.
