Storyline

Tired of the daily grind, construction worker Charlie "Red" Redkin (Gabe Fazio, The Place Beyond the Pines) and his lifelong friends are fed up with the fight for money. When ruthless developer Gene (Ed Setrakian, The Sopranos) and his greedy son Ira (Lev Gorn, The Americans) force the construction business run by Red's father Senior (Bruce Kirkpatrick, The Wire) into debt, desperation and rage twist into a relentless need for revenge. As the pressure of a foreclosure threatens his family's home, Red and his friends are propelled into a life of crime to get cash fast. But when the deceit and corruption become too heavy a burden, "the boys" are pushed to the edge. Together, they are faced with a dilemma that will test their morals, faith, and ultimately, their loyalties to each other. In a world that refuses to let the workingman thrive, they want a better way. Their American dream was stolen, but they will steal it back. Written by Anonymous

True to life
11 March 2014 | by (Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie because it seemed true to life. I thought I was watching a real family. I especially liked the scene between the mother and daughter. I thought the writer did a great job with that relationship. It reminded me of some arguments I had with my mother when I was that age. Even though I didn't agree with the way the characters behaved, I understand why they were doing what they were doing and what the filmmaker is saying in this film. I have two brothers and I grew up around "boys" like this. I can also understand how people who did not grow up around people like this may not be able to relate to this film. This film is not easy to watch because its subject matter is one that I think many people choose not to look at, but it definitely exists. I think this film tells a story that many families are going through in the hard times of today. I thought that the filming was gritty and the music was great!
