ynopsis

Tommy, the sole member of his family who is not involved in crime, returns home after serving as a Marine in Operation Desert Storm. Tommy had entered the war with enthusiasm but became disillusioned when the conflict ended with Saddam Hussein still in power. Disenchanted with military service, Tommy beat up an MP, stole a Colonel's Jeep, and ended up serving time in the brig.

In Philadelphia, he rooms with his aunt Tina and exerts a good influence on Vincent, his slow younger brother.

An FBI agent (played by Dennehy) blackmails Tommy into infiltrating the family business. Tommy is threatened with prison unless he wears a wire to record negotiations between his cousin and gang leader Joey Marcucci and Sicilian mafia boss Luciano Reggio who is muscling in on the family's turf.
