Canadian distributor: Breakthrough Entertainment

On a sweltering summer night in Toronto’s famed Little Italy neighbourhood, an after-hours birthday/homecoming celebration is being held for Nino (Fab Filippo), the handsome golden boy who’s been knocking around L.A. for several years. Now he’s home where he will star in a major director’s new movie. On his arm, his co-star and big-name leading lady, Vanessa Luna (Paula Rivera). Add wine, sumptuous Italian food and a guest-list that’s a cross-section of Italian immigrant life, and stir. Guests include the contractor Leo (John Cassini), who’s just uncovered his wife’s affair; Frankie (Ron Lea), who has scandalized the family with a tell-all novel; Alberto (Alvaro D’Antonio), an Italian-community media mogul; failed restauranteur Eddie (Louis Di Bianco); mobster-turned-chef Bruno (Tony Nappo); and Vince (Nick Mancuso), the aging director who is also prone to manipulation by Vanessa Luna. What begins as a joyous gathering soon disintegrates into an explosion of old wounds and long buried secrets in this world where love and friendship trump bad blood as surely as the sun rises on College Street.
