Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Drifter Ray Rucci (Michael Cavalieri) is called from California by his stepmother (Trisha Melynkov) because his stonecutter father, Tony (Harold Cannon), is dying. Back in Chicago after a 12-year absence, Ray finds sister Carlotta (Karin Akrgoud-Morrisey) bitter, his father emotionally drained, and family secrets beginning to surface. Winner of the Jack Nicholson Screenplay Award, the film employed a hand-held camera for most scenes. Shown at the 1998 Santa Barbara Film Festival.
