Lansky follows the character of Meyer Lansky (Richard Dreyfuss) who is
an organized crime boss. Meyer is on the run from the authorities after
they caught him doing some shady dealings. He travels the world in
search of a hiding place, and he must use all of his street smarts and
his skills he's learned through the years to keep him alive and well.
Lansky comes close to being found a few times, but always manages to get
away from the authorities and continue running.
