Released from prison after taking the fall for a group of his friends, Leo Handler (Wahlberg) just wants to get his life back on track. But when he takes a job with his powerfully influential Uncle Frank (James Caan - The Godfather Trilogy, Mickey Blue Eyes) and reconnects with his old friend Willie (Phoenix), Leo finds himself unwittingly drawn into a world of sabotage, high-stakes payoffs and even murder! Then, he discovers a secret that makes him the target of the city's most ruthless family - his own!
