The streets of New York City act as the back drop for this gritty true to life mob thriller, where trust and respect are taught but never counted on. Vincent Dianni (Danny Aiello 'Moonstruck', '2 Days in the Valley', 'Dinner Rush'), has spent most of his life working as a hit man for Don Cucci. Recently, somebody ratted on the Don and the Feds have put him away for life. Vincent takes the Don's arrest in his stride, as is ready to retire and spend time with Marilyn (Polly Draper ' TV's 'thirtysomething'), the only person that truly makes him happy. Things begin to unravel, as Vincent is suspected of being the man who ratted on the Don, and Tommy Cucci (William Forsythe 'Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigilo', 'The Rock', 'Dick Tracy') is ordered to deal with him for betraying his father. As the truth is revealed, Vincent knows that he may have signed his own death warrant.
