In March 1979, the Gerhardt family is the most powerful crime syndicate in Fargo, North Dakota. Their power is threatened by two near-simultaneous incidents. A debilitating stroke leaves patriarch Otto incapacitated, potentially jeopardizing the dynasty’s leadership. Two of his sons, Dodd and Bear, begin competing for control. At a Waffle Hut near Luverne, an attempt by the third Gerhardt son Rye to extort Judge Mundt into unfreezing his business partner Skip Sprang’s assets turns deadly. Rye kills Mundt and two Waffle Hut employees. Wounded, he sees what appears to be a UFO and stumbles into the road, where he is struck by a passing car. The driver, beautician Peggy Blumquist, assumes Rye is dead and hides him in her garage. Her husband Ed, a butcher, discovers Rye alive but manic, and stabs him to death after being attacked. Peggy convinces a visibly shaken Ed to keep the incident a secret, and they hide the corpse in their meat freezer. State trooper Lou Solverson and Sheriff Hank Larsson begin investigating the diner shooting. At home, Lou deals with his wife Betsy’s progressing cancer. In light of Otto’s stroke, members of a Kansas City-based syndicate make plans to move on Fargo.
In a small Minnesota town, a shooting at a diner disrupts the lives of a state officer, a married couple, and a North Dakota crime syndicate.
