"Marisa Tomei, John Leguizamo and Rosie Perez lead an all-star cast in this powerful story of dreams, and the gritty world that drags them down. With hopes of a professional basketball career, young streetwise Lex (Nick Chinlund) watches over his timid little brother, Mick (Michael Raynor). When he vows never to let the streets pull him under, Lex marries Debbie (Perez) and starts a family. When the basketball dream ends and pressures of everyday life come crashing in, Lex descends into crime. In his directorial debut, Seth Zvi Rosenfeld creates a chilling world where in the end, two brothers are together again. Featuring Nick Chinlund, Michael Raynor, John Leguizamo, Cathy Moriarty, Michael Rapaport and Marisa Tomei."
