When a small-time hoodlum is apparently killed by Eliot Ness during a raid, the man's teenage son, Nicky Bousso, tries to kill him. Ness realizes that Nicky is no hood and tries to be nice, but the kid is persistent. When ballistics confirm that the man was killed before the raid took place, Nicky thinks Ness is just making it up. Nicky gets a job cleaning cars at his father's former place of work, a taxi company owned by Gus Marco. Unbeknown to Nicky, Marco is a major hoodlum and his father was in fact a hood. He is soon faced with the choice of following in his father's footsteps or helping out Ness and the Feds.

Hired gun from Chicago, Charlie Steuben, is waiting in his hotel room for Ness to back off his tight surveillance. Steuben is throwing darts at a hand-drawn target on his door. Just before he tells his girl to leave, he throws a dart that sticks near the edge of the third ring from the center. As the girl leaves, he throws another dart but the first dart on the door is now just outside the bulls-eye center. The second dart hits near it so that both darts are now at the bulls eye when the scene ends. See more
