Summary: It's early autumn of 1975 in Brooklyn and 18 year-old Brian Leary is killing time, pulling off petty crimes with his street tough older brother Danny, whom he both idolizes and fears. They both live with their parents, Paddy, a longshoreman, and his long suffering wife, Margaret who puts up with Paddy's drinking and abusive behavior, especially to her and Danny. Though Paddy has never been physically abusive to Brian, every time he sees his brother's suffering, his heart breaks a little more. Brian works for Whitey at the failing Lafayette movie theater. Owing money to local mobsters, Whitey calls in a favor to an old friend who works with The Rolling Stones. They come up with a deal to have the Stones play at Whitey's theater for one night only before their gig at Madison Square Garden and Brian is put in charge of getting the word out to everyone in the neighborhood. In the twists and turns that follow on the night of the concert, both brothers must reexamine their dreams, and make decisions that will change their lives forever. (Screen Media Films)
