Keywords: Crime

An ex-convict striving for a better life is drawn into a web of corruption at his job in a Queens subway repair yard.

Leo Handler, a recently released convict, aims for a more legitimate life than the one he'd had before; jobs are scarce, however, so he finds work as an associate of buddy Willie Gutierrez, bag man for corrupt contractor Frank Olchin (who happens to be his aunt's husband). Leo is soon drawn into a grisly world of corruption and murder as his "business" plunges him into New York City's shipping-powered criminal underworld.
