causing rivalry

crime by Irish mobster Frank Costello (Nicholson) in the Irish neighborhood of South Boston. Costello, his number two Arnold "Frenchy" French (Winstone), bodyguard "Fitzy" Fitzgibbons (O'Hara) and muscleman Timothy Delahunt (Rolston) run the most powerful crew in Boston, often causing rivalry with the Italian-American Mafia. Costello trains Sullivan to become a mole inside the Massachusetts State Police. Sullivan is accepted into the Special Investigations Unit, which focuses on organized crime. Before he graduates from the police academy, William "Billy" Costigan Jr. (DiCaprio) is asked by Captain Queenan (Sheen) and Staff Sergeant Dignam (Wahlberg) to go undercover, as his family ties to organized crime make him a perfect infiltrator. He drops out of the academy and does time in prison on a fake assault charge to increase his credibility.
