In jealousy and rage, Connor kills Sullivan’s wife and his younger son Peter, though he could not hurt Michael Jr., Sullivan’s eldest son, who hid well when he got home. Sullivan flees with Michael Jr. having the rage in his heart to take revenge.
The last scene depicts a father(Sullivan) dying in his son’s arms and Michael Jr. winning over his father’s fear of choosing the same life as his by not holding a gun thereafter.
