THE KITCHEN - Final Trailer.
In Hell's Kitchen 1978, three middle-aged women are married to members of the Irish mob, Kathy and her reluctant but kind husband Jimmy, African-American Ruby is married to Kevin, the son of Helen and heir to the mob empire, and timid Claire is married to Rob, who abuses her. One night, the men are busted by FBI agents and sentenced to three years in prison. Little Jackie becomes head of the mob and tells the wives they'll be taken care of, but the money isn't enough for the women to survive. When the women discover that the local businesses paying protection fees are not happy under Little Jackie, they begin collecting protection fees and helping out the neighborhood, making a profit and becoming beloved in the community. When Jackie finds out, he goes after the women, but is killed by Gabriel O'Malley, a former Irish mob enforcer called in by Ruby. With Jackie out of the way, and Gabriel as their enforcer, the women begin running the neighborhood and Gabriel and Claire begin a relationship. The women eventually are ordered to meet with Alfonso Coretti, the head of the Italian mafia. He suggests they make a deal and tells them he's arranged for their husbands to be released from prison. Knowing that this will threaten the women's power, Coretti says he'll support them and give them more of the city to control, and the women take the deal. When the husbands get out of prison, Kevin thinks he's still charge, Jimmy pressures Kathy for them to leave their life of crime, and Rob is furious that Claire has left him for Gabriel. When Rob tracks Claire down, she kills him. After Rob's murder, Corettti tells the women that a contract has been placed on them by members of their own gang. Ruby offers more money for the mafia to kill Kevin and two other gangsters. The hit goes through, but Claire is killed when a younger member comes back to exact revenge.
