Overview

For the past two decades, small-time gangster Al (Vincent Spano) has been deeply troubled by the murder of his father and secretly desires to go straight. Al and his volatile partner Nicky (Ricky Aiello) work for crooked real estate developer Frank Parente (Danny Aiello). One day, Al's Aunt Rose (Morgana King) lets a room to Gabriella (Maria Grazia Cucinotta), a young filmmaker who has come to document Brooklyn life in her newest film. As enigmatic as she is beautiful, Al can't help but fall for her. Trouble brews when Parente gets suspicious of her and orders Nicky to dig around in Gabriella's room. He finds that Gabriella is not telling the whole truth and that her documentary is really a video dossier on Parente, something he promptly shows to Al. In confronting Gabriella, he learns that he and she have a lot more in common than he previously suspected and that their bond stems back to the murderous Parente.
