The Streets of the Bronx are a tough place for a kid to grow up, you learn fast of lose everything. Lorenzo's son Calogero learns about the virtues of hard, honest wotk from his father who owns nothing but his intergrity; but he learns about easy money and life on the streets from the man who owns them, mobster called Sonny (Chazz Palminteri). Now Calogero must choose between earning respect like his father, or commanding it like Sonny. Always one step away from a broken bottle. a pistol whipping of a shotgun blast, one young man, torn between two worlds just a city block apart, is about to learn that the streets run two ways. For every cent of easy money, there's a tough, and sometimes deadly, lesson to be learned.
