Four racketeering friends in New York's Little Italy get themselves into trouble over money and disorder.
Scorsese's first major work, a typically well made (and presumably semi-autobiographical) story about unpleasant characters, in a style similar to the later Goodfellas, although heavily influenced at the time by Cassavetes, with semi-improvised and often incoherent dialogue.
