An American Masterpiece
In a community entrenched in honor and iron wills, secrets have a way of exploding. It’s an uneasy venue for a patchwork family. For a wobbly marriage. For a world-weary longshoreman who feels his strength slipping, inch by treacherous inch. A man’s man who discovers, too late, that the most dangerous enemy is the one that comes from within - or from the girl who once played at his feet. This is a true thriller with life and death stakes, disguised as an American Classic. Experience it from the edge of your seat.
Featuring: Jim DeVita, Tim Gittings, Colleen Madden, Brian Mani & Melisa Pereyra
