In the London of early 50’s, twin brothers Ronnie and Reggie Kray begin a series of illicit activities, that exponentially grew to perpetrate more and more horrible crimes. Surrounding themselves with questionable and dangerous individuals, they soon organize an atrocious and violent group of offenders, that in a few years will rule almost the entire dark underground of London’s criminal activities.
The Firm, the name by which the Kray organized group came to be known, was specialized in terrorizing rival criminal organizations, beginning a new chapter in the history of violence in Great Britain, in a time where organized crime was way more civilized than today, so to speak, as criminals had a preference to solve things in easy and straightforward conversations, rarely using guns or firearms to win disputes. All of this behavior changed, when the Kray brothers entered in the underworld criminal scene.
Initially united as brothers, and acting as a single leadership, The Firm begins to collapse as the criminal organization grew and expanded its power, mainly because the differences in character and personality of the twins became more and more apparent, conflicting with each other drastically. Ronnie Kray, a man extremely predisposed to violence, soon started to confront his brother Reggie, a more prudent and considerate individual, always willing to solve problems in a civilized manner. As Ronnie Kray begins to suffer from difficult psychiatric conditions, he became even more unstable, violent, unpredictable and impossible to control. Soon, Reggie grows tired of the erratic behavior of his brother, as the irreconcilable differences between them grew severely each day. Inevitably, the brothers became irreversibly divided, and their organization starts to fall apart.
