Beatrice and Eddie Carbone have built an all-American life in Brooklyn where people are meant to look out for each other. When wife and husband agree to take in their relations—two hard-working Sicilian immigrants—the family should pull together. Instead, everything starts to unravel. Eddie included.
A romantic spark between Eddie’s orphaned niece and one of the handsome arrivals, spins their stories beyond control. Eddie finds his darkest desire is in danger of being exposed, and his violent passion risks setting aflame everything the family has built.
