Short synopsis follows:
Butchie is a lifelong street guy. He's a bookie, a heavy, a loan shark and he wouldn't want it any other way. When one of his superiors dies unexpectedly, Butchie is tasked with escorting his former boss's longtime mistress, Kate, to the funeral services. Over the course of a day the two realize that the life they have chosen may not have turned out as planned.
