Vinnie Depasquale is a budding young boxer in Sicily when a woman visits him in a dream and tells him to go to the sacred mountainside. When Vinnie obeys, the woman visits him again, and this time Vinnie knows who it is—the Virgin Mary. She tells him that she has seven requests for him and that in seven years, miracles will happen in Sicily for the people of the world. But when Vinnie’s brother is killed and his father assumes leadership of part of a local crime family, Vinnie and his family are forced to flee the violent Mafia war in Sicily to save their lives.
Vinnie arrives in America and meets Don Marenzano, who takes the young pugilist under his wing. Marenzano trains Vinnie at his own gym and does everything he can to promote Vinnie’s boxing career. But Vinnie isn’t so sure he can trust Marenzano; he wears a devil ring on his finger.
As deceptions unravel and the body count of those close to Vinnie continues to rise, tenuous alliances form between the Depasquale and Marenzano families. And watching over everyone is the Virgin Mary, who still has a part to play in the forging of this miracle fighter.
