Two old friends return to Chicago's South Side and find the neighborhood still drunk and lost in denial; the only difference is now so are they.


"Homecoming, home-wrecking, and home team are all themes in a wry drama set deep in the heart of Chicago’s Irish American subculture. Prodigal son Danny Malone (Madden) comes home to his indulgent mother and bullying father after an absence of thirteen years as his best friend Fudd (Phelan) arrives home from Iraq. Danny, harboring a potentially fatal secret, and Fudd, with his dark memories, are pulled back into the boozy embrace of the old neighborhood, where the bonds of schoolyard loyalties have been loosened by adult failures, jealousy, and infidelity. Director Looby evokes the South Side milieu with the accuracy and affection of an insider, including the adrenalin-rush chaos of the St. Patrick’s Day parade." - Barbara Scharres, Programmer, Gene Siskel Film Center
