It's 1955 at Gracie's restaurant in Hoboken, NJ, which is frequented by Italian American longshoremen. The year before Marlon Brando came to Hoboken to shoot "On the Waterfront", but that glamorous time is gone forever. The regulars at Gracie's are adrift with failed hopes. The story revolves around Beep ity Beep, a sour, failed singer who wants to reclaim Gracie's affections. He loved and lost her eighteen years before. Their relationship is complicated by a double murder and a secret Grace has kept all these years.
Directed by Dan Grimaldi, featuring Lou Martini, Jr. (The Sopranos), and Anna Mastroianni. Its large cast includes actors from "The Sopranos", "As the World Turns", "Law and Order" "Goodfellas."
