Though made for only $5000, this gritty and bittlerly funny crime drama marks the debut of promising young New York filmmaker Sal Stabile. Set in a blue-collar neighborhood near Coney Island, it centers on four young men aimlessly hanging out for an evening. They are start in Ray's basement where Zane starts a fight and ends up accidentally shooting Ray's big brother. After much debate, the boys decide to get rid of the body themselves to save trouble. Two more deaths occur until the foursome find themselves tooling about in a car, trying to act normally, as if they weren't carrying three corpses in their trunk and making unsuccessful attempts to dispose of them.
