Storyline

In the winter of 2005, the final bloody war between the fading Irish and Italian mobs of Boston took place, a mass slaughter that would change America's underworld forever. Showing both sides in an equal light with neither as a clear-cut "hero" or "villain" group, the film is a cold examination of how quickly pride, anger, and desperation can tear a city apart.
