Inspired by actual events, the suspense thriller The Iceman follows notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon, Take Shelter) from his early days in the mob until his arrest for the murder of more than 100 men.

When finally arrested in 1986, neither his wife nor daughters have any clue about his real profession.
