Francis Ford Coppola's grand finale to the epic Mafia saga once again stars Al Pacino as Michael Corleone, the aging don of the infamous Corleone family. Michael is on the verge of legitimizing the family business with the help of his nephew, Vincent Mancini (Andy Garcia). However, failing health and treacherous Mafioso colleagues Joey Zasa (Joe Mantegna) and Don Altobello (Eli Wallach) keep him immersed in the criminal life he had hoped to escape.

In the third film of Francis Ford Coppola's Corleone family saga, 20 years have passed and Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) is in failing health and haunted by remorse over his brother Fredo's murder. As part of his plan for legitimizing the family business, Michael contributes a large donation to the church and accepts an honor from the pope. His nephew, Vincent (Andy Garcia), becomes his protégé with the help of Connie (Talia Shire) while his own children, Anthony (Franc D'Ambrosio) and Mary (Sofia Coppola), remain free from a life of crime. After selling his casinos and laundering his money through the Vatican, Michael attempts to take over a European-owned company, International Immobiliare. However, former mob colleagues Don Altobello (Eli Wallach) and Joey Zasa (Joe Mantegna) force his return to the underworld, and Vincent's brash temper almost starts a mob war. In Sicily, Michael instructs Vincent to form an alliance with his enemy, Don Altobello. Many of the same cast from Coppola's first two films are back in this powerful sequel. New to the series is George Hamilton, surprisingly effective as Michael's financial advisor, B. J. Harrison.
