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. The Winter Hill Gang has been a mere shadow of its former self since its now-infamous leader Whitey Bulger went on the run from the FBI in 1995.

Times are tough in a city where the working class they prey upon are replaced by increasing numbers of students and yuppies, and so when the latest boss Sean catches wind of an Italian heroin deal, he sees a chance to help bring the organization back to its earlier heights.

Trivia

When shooting the storage shed assassination scene some fake blood stains were accidentally left behind. The next morning the blood was discovered by the landowner, who called the police. The area was immediately flooded with local police, homicide detectives, and corpse-sniffing dogs, and the police quickly found actor Matt Jenkins, who awoke director Timothy Norman with a phone call saying the police were at his apartment. Fortunately the misunderstanding was quickly smoothed over with the words "student film." See more »
