Kampacalas & Son Winery

***SPOILERS*** After doing 12 years of hard time in the big house, San Quentin, Jason Kampacalas, Paul Michael Glaser, tries to patch things up with his dad Papa Kampacalas, Nehemiah Persoff, who had disowned him some 12 years ago. It was then that Jason was involved in a hit and run accident where two young girls were killed. What Papa didn't know is that it was not Jason who was behind the wheel of the car that killed the two girls but older son Dimitri, Scott Marlow. Not only that it was Jason who took the rap for older brother Dimitri's action to have him finish his collage education and become a big shot in the Greek/American community!

As we soon see that the collage boy and successful business man Dimitri was not Papa Kampacalas' "Apple in his eye" but rotten to the core who was not only a fraud as a human being but successful businessman as well. Up to his neck in debt in his business ventures, Greek restaurant and wine field, Dinitri plans to get out of the mess he made for himself by torching the family restaurant and collecting the insurance money. And to top all that off have his brother, who's got enough problems already, end up taking the rap for it like he did 12 years ago in the hit & run accident! That's until SFPD Det. Let. Mike Stone , Karl Malden, came on the scene and realized that Jason despite being an ex-con was totally innocent of the charges lodged against him!

***SPOILERS*** It's when Dimitri refused to come clean in his latest crime, murder arson, and have his kid brother Jason again take the rap for what he did that Jason confronted him in the family winery and had it out with him. That's until the police Let.Det. Stone and partner Inspt. Steve Keller, Michael Douglas came to break up the slug-fest before Dimitri ended up drowning in a wine barrel.As for Papa he soon realized that Jason was the good son that he rejected and let the bad son Dimitri pay for his crimes and install Jason as his partner in his restaurant & wine business conglomerate. It took Jason 12 long years to prove that he's innocent which his father held him responsible for.
