Description: Vinnie is a tender guy whose lifetime is an constant fight: he is an outcast at college since he cannot get along with either professors or pupils, he is a nearby courier for Mafia-boss Ciccio at evening and, when not so busy, spends his time training boxing at the gym. He shares his mom’s crowded home in federal government housing with two other friends and his mother’s partner — whom he does not love. His father’s boxing job and Mafia participation set a pattern for Vinnie’s existing life. When Vinnie’s music educator Bonnie gets in his life, she motivates him to get involved as a drummer with the class group, while his girlfriend Gloria and others affect him to stay away from the Mafia.
