In 1978 New York City, Lefty Ruggiero, an aging long-time gangster in the Bonanno crime family, meets Joe Pistone, a young FBI agent who has gone undercover as jewel thief “Donnie Brasco”. Lefty asks Donnie to sell a diamond he acquired from a strip club owner, but Donnie insists that it is fake. Insulted, Lefty takes Donnie to the man and demands an explanation. Donnie impresses Lefty by beating a confession out of the man and demanding his Porsche as repayment. Lefty teaches Donnie the rules of the Mafia and introduces him to members of his crime family including Sonny, Nicky, Paulie and rival crew leader Sonny Red. After the boss of the family is killed, Sonny receives a promotion, angering Lefty who feels his years of service make him more deserving. As the crew runs a series of successful shakedowns and hijackings in the city, Pistone infiltrates the crime family and collects more information for the FBI via wiretap recordings. He also ends up forming a genuine bond with Lefty, who struggles to make ends meet despite a long career in the mob.

Pistone is asked by his FBI supervisor to incorporate Miami-based undercover FBI agent Richie Gazzo into the Donnie Brasco operation. He convinces Sonny and his crew to set up an operation in Florida, and arranges a deal for Richie and Lefty to become partners in a club. Lefty hopes to impress local mob boss, Trafficante, by throwing a yacht party and convincing him to let Lefty relocate permanently. Sonny finds out about Lefty’s plan and intercedes by ingratiating himself to Trafficante and officially taking Donnie under his wing. Lefty believes Donnie betrayed him and cuts ties with him until Lefty’s son nearly dies of an overdose.
