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

An in-depth look at the blue-collar lifestyle
2 April 2014 | by TheJaneLowellSee all my reviews

I loved that this movie takes a deep look at the dynamics of an average American family floundering in a bad economy. The economic downturn effects everyone in a family and not just the bread winner. I could totally relate to the mother who is trying to take care of her kids, her home, her husband, and then also have to work long hours for a measly paycheck. The stress of working for so little can tear a family apart and this movie shows what happens when money is a constant issue: parents can't provide their kids with the type of care they need and a married couple can't nurture their relationship when they are being pulled in different directions by a multitude of responsibilities. Slowly but surely the strain takes over and frustrations are taken out on the ones you love. It's a tough thing to look at, but it happens every day in this country and I applaud the director for showing that reality in America right now. Marriage and children is a dream for most people and the current economic climate make it nearly impossible to live comfortably and properly care for your family - especially for the middle class. The director tackles an extremely topical and significant subject and does it in an astute way. This is not just a typical action male-centric film about blue-collar life. It's an in-depth look at how the blue- collar lifestyle can cause resentments, envy, anger, and dissatisfaction.
