1. Synopsis

Niccolo Mac Vitelli is the oldest of three brothers and becomes the de facto head of their family after their father dies. Their father was in construction and the brothers follow in his footsteps. At first, they work for Polowski, who cuts corners and does not do an adequate job, as well as being verbally abusive to his employees with no pride in his work. This causes them to start their own company - Vitelli Brothers Construction, which will be the opposite of Polowski. Mac starts becoming a tyrannical workaholic with obsessive concern about the quality of their work with worrying attention to detail. His intensity and driven ambition pushes his brothers away and breaks the family apart.
