Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this streetwise independent drama, Sean (Tommy Guiffre) is a drug dealer who seems to have enjoyed more than his share of good luck -- he's managed to avoid the law, he makes good money, and he has a handful of business associates he can trust. However, Sean's luck seems to run out all at once -- his girlfriend (Nicole Arlyn) breaks off their long-term relationship, his schizophrenic mother (Christie Sanford) becomes seriously ill, his best friend (Christopher Amitrano) is deep in debt to loan sharks, and his younger brother (David Ley) runs afoul of the cops as he tries to follow in Sean's footsteps by selling weed. It doesn't take Sean long to realize his chosen profession is not only setting a bad example for his loved ones, but making it harder for him to help them, so he decides to get out of the game, but not before mapping out a final major score that will give him some retirement income. The first feature film from director Rich Devaney, Brooklyn Bound was screened at the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival.
