In the City of Brotherly Love, eight-year-old Peter Flood helplessly watches on as his little sister is killed by a neighbor's reckless driving. Tormented with grief and resentment, his father finds revenge as the only solution, leaving lasting generational wounds. Thirty years later, Peter still wrestles with the guilt he feels over his sister's death and his father's vengeance. As he tries to distance himself from the criminal family business, his cousin, Michael, becomes more powerful in the hierarchy. Bonded by blood, neither man can escape violence as they are dragged further into a chilling cycle of betrayal and retribution. Written by Canon y mus

So much wasted potential
9 February 2021 | by mps-09977See all my reviews

I saw the negative user reviews and thought, "They could be wrong. I like the actors; I like the genre. This must be better than they're saying" Nope. They were right. So much wasted potential. It's watchable but the way they tell the story isn't that great and neither is the ending.
