Our film is about a character called ‘The don G’ who is a mafia boss who hires
to his 2 henchmen called ‘Luca and Mario’ to kidnap an ex henchman who
double crossed him. They need to kidnap a man called ‘DIYA AL DIN’ , however
they kidnap a wrong person.

THE DON G
The don g has been the don for over 25 years since his father ‘Papa don G’
died. He has many connections with underground cartels and is best friends
with ‘Tony Montana’ He has no family and is a very reckless man. When he was
17 he was introduced to the mafia by his father and since then he has been
working with them. His father later got shot down at the age of 45 and since
then he has been leading the mafia into success. The don g has a big build and
wears a suit as he needs to look professional at all times. He has very dark
Italian features and speaks overly stereotypical. He has been seeking revenge
ever since his father’s death and is driven by greed and corruption. He has no
wife, but has had many affairs with different women. He spends most of his
money on cars, girls, drugs and assassinations. In the last 5 years he has spent
over 20 million of the government’s money on these.

LUCA
Luca has been a henchman for THE DON G for over 5 years and has done many
assassinations for him. He short white boy with brown hair and brown eyes
from Sicily. He came over from Sicily 10 years ago because his family was
murdered, He quickly started making a name for him for making people
disappear. The don G heard about his family and the made an agreement that
he would help him track down the killers if he agreed to join the mafia. He is
under the mafias protection and lives in a nice farmhouse in the middle of
nowhere with a nice car and plenty of women. The DON-g is like a father figure
to him and he knows that he looks up to him. As the DON G has no son he also
sees him as a son. The Don set him up with his partner in crime MARIO who
has looked after and guided him for the whole 5 years.

MARIO
Mario is a tall black man. Not a lot is known about this character as he likes to
keep himself to himself. He’s been a part of the Family since anyone can
remember. He was Papa Don G’s number one enforcer, and since his death
he’s never been the same. He believes that Papa don G’s murder was a set up
by another family what break the codes and conducts of the respect the
families have for each other. It’s said he used to have a wife and kids, but after
the Papa Don G’s death he wanted to leave and as blackmail they were killed
and there murders were pinned on him, the only way to be cleared was to stay
with the Mafia. The only person he really talks to is Luca; he sees a younger
version of himself and constantly warns him to get out.
