In 1933, three thugs search for a man named “Noodles”, torturing people for information. They enter a wayang theater, where the proprietors slip into a hidden opium den within the building and warn Noodles. He is apathetic, drugged and grasping a newspaper featuring the demise of bootleggers Patrick Goldberg, Philip Stein and Maximilian Bercovicz. He recalls observing police removing their corpses, Max’s burned beyond recognition. Noodles evades capture and leaves the city alone and penniless. In 1918, David “Noodles” Aaronson and his friends “Patsy” Goldberg, “Cockeye” Stein and Dominic struggle as street kids in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, committing petty crimes for local boss Bugsy. Max foils one of their robberies but has the booty stolen from him by a corrupt police officer.

Using the officer’s trysts with an underage prostitute as blackmail, the five youngsters start a gang with the same level of police protection as Bugsy. Max and Noodles become best friends. The group rises through the ranks after implementing Noodles’ idea to hide bootleg liquor. They stash half their earnings in a railway station locker, giving the key to “Fat Moe”, a friend not directly involved in their activities. Noodles is in love with Moe’s sister, Deborah, who dreams of becoming a dancer and actress. An envious Bugsy eventually ambushes the boys and shoots Dominic, who dies in Noodles’ arms. In a fit of rage, Noodles kills Bugsy and injures a police officer, and is sentenced to prison.
