Item Details

New York City, November 1988. Bobby Green is the manager of a Russian nightclub owned by Marat Buzhayev. The club is frequented by gangsters like Buzhayev's nephew Vadim. Despite Bobby's hedonistic and amoral lifestyle, he is committed to his girlfriend Amada. Bobby has a secret, however, which he guards closely. His brother is Police Captain Joseph Grusinsky and his father, Bert, is a legendary Deputy Chief. Bobby's strained relationship with his father and brother is tested when Bert warns his son that the police mean to clean up the drugs and Bobby will have to have to choose a side. After Joseph is badly wounded in an assassination attempt, Bobby finds that he can no longer remain neutral. When he discovers his father could be next, Bobby realizes they will only be safe when Nezhinski and his organization are destroyed, so Bobby and Joseph join forces for an all-out assault.
