What is the plot of Bad Blood on Netflix?
Bad Blood is described by Netflix as a “sprawling crime drama” that “follows the true story of the Rizzuto family and its associates, who presided over organised crime in Montreal for decades”.
The action starts off in the early 2000s when Vito Rizzuto (played by Anthony LaPaglia) is the boss of a crime family, seeking to bring peace to Montreal’s criminal world.
But this comes at a cost for him and his organisation.
He succeeds, but only after being implicated and arrested for multiple murders committed in 1981, causing his empire to crumble.
The story is a convoluted portrayal of crime and betrayal in Montreal’s criminal underworld.
Events depicted are loosely based on the true crime book Business or Blood: Mafia Boss Vito Rizzuto’s Last War by Peter Edwards and Antonio Nicaso.
