It's Cuba, circa 1960. Along with your friend and mentor Don Aldo Trapani (the hero from the first Godfather game) and THE Don Michael Corleone, you have just arrived for Hyman Roth's birthday. Here the aging crime lord plans to divide up his territory. Regrettably, this is also a time of great civil unrest and guerilla soldiers overthrow the Cuban government forcing the Corleone family to make a hasty departure. In the chaos Aldo is wounded and dies and Michael puts you in charge of his family.
