Jimmy and Jon are a couple of Brooklyn guys who somehow never found their way into workaday society; they never found their way into big-time crime, either. But that all changes when their old friend Frankie returns from Florida with some guns to sell. In the course of a few very short urban summer days, their lives spin permanently out of control.Written by

I'm not going to sit here and tell you this long drawn out synopsis about this masterpiece of a film. But, I'm not the one to leave people in the dark, so it'll be a brief synopsis.
Johnny, the main character gets canned in the slammer over some petty charge. His best friend , and the wiser, sells guns that belong to a hot-head named Frankie, this pays Johnny's bail. Frankie, Johnny's best friend (forgot character's name), and Johnny, were once this entrusting ghettoized circle of friends, now Frankie's peeved at the both of them for running guns and blowing the profits for Johnny's well-being. This begins a volatile pattern of street bravado, and someone will definitely find themselves in a unfortunate disposition.
Brilliant acting, you can't even call it acting, call it, hanging on the block with your crew. These guys are so natural and effortless. The realism and pace of this film is why cinema buffs find a reason to get up mornings.
