A tragicomic crime story set in the outer fringes of New York City.
Billy is a fixer for Reagan, a small-time mob boss in Irish Yonkers. The old man taught Billy the ropes, and promised a big future. Billy is a fast talker who sees himself as an entrepreneur, but it’s getting harder for him to ignore the ugly reality of Reagan’s criminal operation…a fact not lost on his pregnant fiancé. Gina is ready to start a family away from the criminal world.
Into this fraught triangle drops Huey, a man-child who grew up in prison. All he knows is the skewed and brutal logic he learned inside. Finally out on the street, he just wants a good meal, a decent job and a chance to prove himself.
Billy is tasked by his boss, Reagan, to mentor Huey, and against his better instincts, Billy grows protective of his inept partner. When a guns-for-cash job goes awry, Billy’s world is rocked when he’s instructed to offer-up Huey to keep the peace.
Billy has to decide: save himself or save his friend.
