Working a dead-end job, 29-year-old Brooklynite Conway D'Innocenzio hears that Ray Boy Calabrese—the man who killed his brother 16 years ago—has been released. But even with the perfect plan in place, Conway isn't sure if he is capable of the ultimate revenge. Meanwhile, failed actress Alessandra returns to her native Gravesend after the death of her mother, torn between a desperate need to escape back to L.A. and the lure of her familiar neighborhood life. In William Boyle's 2013 debut, Alessandra and Conway are walking eerily similar paths—staring down the rest of their lives, caring for their aging fathers, lost in the youths they squandered—and each must decide what comes next.
