Gang member Ray Trueblood (Jeff Fahey) is wrongfully accused of murdering a police officer. The real culprit was fellow gangster Billy "Spider" Masters (Billy Drago), who framed Ray for the crime. After skipping town and joining the military, Ray returns to Brooklyn a decade later and makes a startling discovery. His younger brother, Donny (Chad Lowe), has been sucked into gang life. What's more, the leader of his gang is none other than Ray's old nemesis, Spider.
