Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Brothers Tony and Michael Affranti (Troy Ruptash and Vincent Caruso) began in organized crime, but now Tony makes collections for gangster Vinny Catman (John Fell), while Michael -- pressured by his wife Lisa (Renee Rizzo) to go straight -- bakes bagels. Vinny and his henchman Cargo (Patrick Ferraro) cruise about the neighborhood, putting a tight squeeze on debtors, but Tony is reluctant when Vinny wants a dangerous collection. Tony's girlfriend Trish (Shoshana Ami) outlines a plan calculated to free herself, Tony, Michael, and Lisa from the mob for all time -- the brothers don disguises, interrupt Vinny's next drug deal, and make off with the cash. However, Vinny gets wise, with the eventual slow-motion shootout to the accompaniment of Schubert's "Ave Maria." Filmed in Brooklyn and Staten Island and shown at the 1998 Newport Beach Film Festival.
