Joshua Shapira is a hit man for the organizatsya, the Russian mafia. Although still in his twenties, Joshua is a hardened criminal who is estranged from his family and banished from the streets of Little Odessa. Forced to go back to Brighton Beach for a hit, he is inexorably drawn back into his old world. Joshua's little brother is a kid who is con-man enough to skip school for weeks without his parents finding out and who obviously loves -- even worships -- his enigmatic older brother. A young woman in the neighborhood is drawn to Joshua, even though she knows how he makes his living. Joshua's aging parents' grip on the past will keep them from understanding the loyalty and violence that permeates their children's lives.
