From the director of "Little Odessa" comes a contemporary drama featuring Mark ("Boogie Nights") Wahlberg as Leo Handler, a tough guy with two kinds of convictions - a prison record and a strong belief he can make a fresh start. He lands a job at his uncle's rail company, but instead of staying out of harm's way he is pulled into an underground that's nothing but trouble. His involvement in an ill-fated act of industrial sabotage leads to the murder of a police officer and unravels a web of corruption in the New York city subway system. Featured among the ensemble are Joaquin ("Gladiator") Phoenix, Charlize ("The Devil's Advocate")Theron and James Caan. Of the story: "Uses urban corruption as a metaphor for the disintegration of an extended family."
