An unseen narrator looks back to 1956, on Staten Island, when Buddy, an Italian guy with big dreams, buys a house planning to live upstairs with his wife Estelle and run a bar downstairs. The first problem is Estelle's lack of confidence in Buddy. Then, Irish tenants upstairs refuse to move and won't pay rent; plus, the woman upstairs is about to have a baby. The next problem is the baby: once he's born, it's clear his father was Black. The Irish guy splits; Buddy evicts mother and child, then feels guilt and sets her up in a flat while she sorts out an adoption. Estelle's lack of faith, the Irish lass's spirit, Buddy's dream, racial prejudice, and the baby's fate play out. Written by

I just saw this movie on IFC and I loved it!! It has a great story line and the character were well developed and I could really relate to them. I'm glad I came across this, I hope to see it again soon. The story is well developed and I like how the ending turned out. I feel like it is another classic love story, and I'm not one to really like "mushy" films, but this is one is really a classic. I could just feel the main character and his dreams and wanting to 'break out'. I hope I can find the film on DVD or VHS. I like how the story touched on racial issues in the 1950's. I wonder if this is based on a book, because it has alot of focus on characters.
