    Hoffa, Chapter 5 - The Finale

    In the summer of 1975, Hoffa was running out of options. His long time organized crime associates told him he should take his pension and retire, but he had no interest in that. He wanted the power back in his hands, presidency of the Teamsters Union. He knew that the only way back to glory was if he could convince east coast crime and labor boss Tony Provenzano to back him.

    Hoffa, Chapter 4 - The Comeback

    "When it was time for me to go they shackled and chained me like a wild animal: ten pounds of leg irons, belly band, handcuffs, and a chain running up from the leg irons to the handcuffs. There was a caravan to Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary that looked like a scene from Bonnie and Clyde.

    Hoffa, Chapter 3 - Blood Feud

    Hoffa, Chapter 2 - Mobbed Up
