Description:

The 1970s. Two ambitious bikers come out of the same tough neighborhood of Hamilton, Ontario. Two biker gangs want to exploit the lucrative drug, prostitution, and vice rackets in Ontario's Golden Horseshoe. This is the improbable story of Mario "the Wop" Parente and Walter Stadnick who respectively become the national presidents of the Outlaws and Hells Angels--and sworn enemies. The Outlaws are an American biker gang who assume power when Satan's Choice falls into disarray. They take a headlock on the distribution of drugs, the supply of prostitutes to strip clubs, and extortion and graft. Their leader is a big, violent man named Mario Parente. Hells Angels have expanded into Quebec and are rapidly exterminating rival biker gangs. They wage a war against the Rock Machine and open up another front in Ontario against the Outlaws. The incursion is the work of 5-foot 4-inch Walter Stadnick, the Angels strategist, who envisions the Hells Angels doing business across Canada. Stadnick will have his hands full with a biker from his hometown, Mario Parente, who is gearing up to protect the Southwest Ontario turf he has fought so hard to acquire by rebuilding Satan's Choice and a partnership with the Para-dice Riders, and be establishing a puppet club, the Black Pistons. The police and the public have no stomach for an all-out biker war. The Hamilton cops, OPP and Surete de Quebec combine forces to launch Project Retire and bring down the Outlaws, a sweep that has unintended outcomes for the balance of biker power in Ontario.
