Tommy Caffee is a rising star in Rhode Island politics and the prince of his home ward - a working-class Irish district known as "The Hill." The murder of local gangster Patty Mullin opens the door to the return of Tommy's brother, Michael, whom Patty had sworn to kill. As Michael begins to reclaim his lost criminal enterprises, Irish mob boss Freddie Cork threatens to whack Michael unless Tommy throws state contracts Freddie's way. Meanwhile, Michael gets into a beef with Moe Riley, one of Freddie Cork's underlings, who is currently in control of Michael's old turf. Eileen Caffee, Tommy's wife, has secrets of her own: she meets Carl, an old boyfriend, at a local motel, where they smoke dope and have sex. In the end, Michael achieves a tenuous treaty with Freddie. Written by

How can I be pissed? You're the prodigal son. You know, if Ma could, she'd kill every fatted calf in New England.
Ooh, you're wicked pissed.
