Storyline

An ex-cop supervises the destruction of corporate bonds redeemed by a New Jersey bank. He plans to steal small amounts of the paper from each shipment without raising suspicion and have a small- time fence from his old neighborhood find a buyer for the stolen bonds. The local mob boss, angry because he is not cut in on the deal, has the 'fence' brutally murdered. He orders his hitman to eliminate the out-of-town buyers and find the 'inside' man. Tom is abducted by the buyers and persuaded to pull off a large scale theft of bonds. He asks help from another ex-cop, his former rookie partner. Tom is killed in a botched exchange and Jimmy and Tom's daughter, DIANE agree to complete the deal and get the men responsible for Tom's death. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Jimmy Vero: [voiceover] My dad always used to say things like "I wonder what's around that corner" or "Hey Jimmy, what d'ya think's at the end of that road?". Yeah, when I was a kid people used to talk like that, used to say those kinds of things, er, just everyday expressions they used. They never really asked themselves, "What's at the end of the road?". When I was a kid I figured people just didn't worry about those things and that made me sad I guess... still does.

An Excellent Independent Feature
2 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

I had the privilege of seeing this film at its debut in NYC. This is an excellent story of how a person's decision makes ripples in the lives of others. The subtle messages, masterfully placed throughout the film, are a treat for the spiritually aware and thinkers alike.

The original writing and editing, lighting, and overall production of this film set this film apart from other independent films. This professionally finished product heralds the directing debut of Phil Gallo and the exceptional writing team of Steve Bretschneider and Mr. Gallo.

For independent feature film lovers, this is the treasure that give us the motivation to continue looking for the rainbows.
