Sometimes when you turn over a new leaf all you find is dirt. This is a story that captures the inner struggle of a man determined to change his life and regain his freedom. Gambling debts, a new bride and a baby on the way force New York City street hustler Bobby Venuti (Richard Castellano, Analyze This), to rethink his life style and move upstate. But an ominous cloud looms over Bobby. When the crowd he ran with and owes money to catches up with him (Vinny Vella, The Sopranos, Casino and Joe Rigano, Analyze This, Mickey Blue Eyes) this once sleepy town turns into a hot bed of criminal activity.
