Synopsis / Plot
This is a story of four young boys. Four lifelong friends. Intelligent, fun- loving, wise beyond their years, they are inseperable. Their potential is unlimited, but they are content within the closed world of New York City's Hell's Kitchen and to play as many pranks as they can on the denizens of the street. They never get caught until one disastrous summer afternoon.
On that day, what begins as a harmless scheme goes horribly wrong. And the four find themselves facing a year's imprisonment in the Wilkinson Home for Boys. What happens to them over the course of that year will change their lives forever.
Years later, one has become a lawyer. One a reporter, and two have grown up to be murderers, professional hit men. For all of them, the pain and the fear of Wilkinson still rages within. Only one thing can erase it. Revenge.
1996: Nominated for Oscar: Best Original Soundtrack - Drama
