    • Synopsis
    • Mafia Wife; the movie; is the story of Lynda Milito and her tumultuous marraige to Louie Milito, famed Capo of the Gambino crime family. Her book *Mafia Wife* was a bible for the FBI. Our movie is her story of love; murder and madness;
      When Lynda Lustig met Louie Milito, she was a sixteen-year-old high school dropout with a taste for adventure and an agonizing childhood; When they were married two years later, he was not yet a *MADE MAN* in the powerful Gambino crime family; Louie was a hairdresser who dabbled in petty thievery; But Lynda was so happy to out ofr her domineering mother's loveless house; And over the years, she was willing to forgive her husband for anything: his violent rages,his frequent absences, his shady associates, such as his closeness with Sammy "the bull" Gravino, the most savage killer and later the highest ranking *RAT* that ever informed on the Mafia plus all the blood on Louie's hands. For twenty-four years Lynda Milito remained loyal to this charming and most dangerous criminal - -
      her children's father and close friend of crime boss John Gotti and underboss Santino *Sammy *the bull* Gravano, who Louie took over into the Gambino's from the Columbo's where he was not improving his position;
      But in 1988, Louie Milito disappeared, murdered by the very people he had always trusted to protect him;

      A crime story, a family story, a love story, MAFIA WIFE is the shockingly intimate, brutally honest tale of a survivor - - and of the life she lived in the dard bosom of the underworld;

      The story incorporates the many colorful characters such as Carlo Gambino, John Gotti (Dapper Dan), Paul Castellano, John Rizzo',Frankie de Cicco and more; Also John Z Adam, mafia inside man and the one who Lynda claims set up Jimmy Hoffa's *hit* with Louie and Sammy in 1975; The film will expose what Lynda heard from Louie about the truth of what befell one of America's greatest murder mysteries of the 20th century;
      The making of this film along with its account of mafia history should rival those great films of the past like "Goodfellows" and "The Godfather" attracting audiences to the box office all over the world.
