After surviving the floods of Hurricane Katrina, Tony’s move to Orlando, Florida appeared to be heaven sent. He was able to open up one of the hottest night clubs in the downtown’s Church Street District. Club Metropolis became the talk of the town and the success it garnered put Tony in the spotlight. Tony reveled in his new found success but his happiness was short lived when he was approached by a mysterious man who gave him an ultimatum. The man told Tony he could either pay him so his club could continue to conduct business in The Church Street District or he could refuse and come up missing. Tony refused the man’s offer without giving it a second thought. The next night, one of his club’s bouncers was brutally murdered in an abandoned warehouse. The murder was a clear attempt to intimidate and force an agreement but Tony did not bulge. Instead of backing down, he recruited his cousin and prepared for war.
