Description Eddie Carbone is a Brooklyn longshoreman, a hard working man whose working life has been uneventful until the arrival of two of his wife's relatives, illegal immigrants from Italy. Eddie cannot understand or control his true feelings for his beautifal niece, Catherine. And what he doesn't know - about her, about life, about his own heart - will have devastating consequences.
An exploration of the intersection between one man's self-delusion and the brutal trajectory of life.
