A dual timeline spanning across two generations of Amalfitano women.
From the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea in Italy, a young Civitella must desperately fight to keep her sovereignty as her dreams of going to America
are crushed in the murder of her father and the suppressing Italian culture looms.
To the tenements of the Bronx NY, 25 years later, where her daughter Antoinette must overcome the stigma of being a child of an immigrant, all while taking on societies limitations and racism, her sisters
beatings, and the threat of obliteration her family faces at the hands of the Mafia.
