In a blink of an eye, it was already 1979, and the second-generation godfather Mike Corleone (played by Al Pacino) was in his twilight years. For the salvation of his soul, Mike gradually ended the family’s underworld business and turned to legitimate business.
Mike’s son Tony loves art and has no intention of taking over the family business. Michael decides to let his eldest brother Sunny’s illegitimate son, the hot and lustful Vincent (Andy Garcia) inherit the family business and become the third-generation godfather. Mike’s beloved daughter Mary (Sofia Coppola) fell in love with Vincent, but was opposed by her father, and her father and daughter gradually became estranged.
In order to legalize the family assets, Mike planned to invest in the “Nili” group through his network in the Vatican, but was secretly blocked by the enemy. The death of the Pope also made things even more confusing.
In desperation, Mike could only choose to use violence to solve the problem again, and his relatives were also involved in this bloody storm.
