This crime drama is BOYZ N the Hood Italian-style, as a gang of Rhode Island punks struggle to make sense of their lives as they hurtle down a drug-fuelled, self-destructive path. Nicholas Turturro (John's younger brother) stars as a jewel thief who specialises in random violence with his gang. Independent film-maker Michael Corrente's cutting edge black-and-white effort infuses the Mean Streets genre with a new, raw, raucous and insightful energy helped enormously by a powerhouse performance from Turturro as a screwed-up psycho thief.

Plot Summary

Crime drama starring Nicholas Turturro and Anthony DeSando. Ralph is a construction worker with a violent temper and a dangerous habit of stealing from the homes of the local Mob in his Italian-American neighbourhood. When his best mate Nicky announces that he's considering going to Italy with his new girlfriend, Ralph's reckless behaviour starts to get out of hand.
