    • Synopsis
    • Ethan Hawke battles to make it big in the shadow of Manhattan in writer
      James DeMonaco's debut feature.
      The lives of three men with their eyes on a bigger prize tragically intersect
      when blue-collar worker Sully Haverson decides to rob the safe
      of smalltime mob boss Parmie Tarzo to give his soon-to-be-born child
      a hope of a better future. Desperate to be remembered for something,
      Tarzo campaigns to save Staten Island Forest while deaf-mute
      deli worker Jasper Sabiano disposes of the victims of the mob boss's
      shadier activities.
      Hard-hitting writer James DeMonaco (The Negotiator, Assault on
      Precinct 13) steps behind the camera and casts two-time Oscar
      nominee Ethan Hawke (Lord of War, Training Day) opposite Vincent
      D'Onifrio (JFK, Full Metal Jacket) in a duo that will make sparks fly.
      Hollywood veteran Seymour Cassel (Academy Award nomination for
      Faces) co-stars.
