1968. Connecticut. Manny and his family sit down to a peaceful Passover dinner and celebrate not only the Jewish holiday, but an impending deal to sell the family business. But when the door is opened for Elijah, it's brother Willie, a former bootlegger and convict, who walks in and threatens the family. Manny must take decisive action, even if it means revealing secrets that may alienate his son, end his marriage, and destroy the family business.
