Gritty family drama about the trials of two dispossessed brothers, set on the streets of New York. Deeply depressed, out-of-work, divorced Manny hates his recently deceased father, adores his mother, and is estranged from his younger brother, Danny. Danny is a scared crack addict who's supported by a hooker/girlfriend. The two brothers reunite for a trip into their scarred past when Danny tries to rob his brother's apartment to get dope money. Manny starts to believe that the only way to redeem his own life is to get his brother into a rehab program. Good acting helps to overcome some script weaknesses but this is one depressing movie.

This is a compelling movie about human failure and the tragedy it brings into the lives of those close to us. It is only for those who have the strength to endure such terrible pain drugs and moral failure bring into out lives and those who care or encounter us. The drama is intense and moving and it didn't need the F word constantly raining on the audience. The human tragedy was powerful enough.....
