After being away for a couple of years, Jerry Bolanti (Joseph Cortese) is back in his tough, North Jersey neighborhood, close to swampy meadowlands where bodies get pulled from the trunks of cars and dumped.
He's short on cash, so a local boss, Anthony Iadavia (Lou Criscuolo), throws him some work - as a collector and a holdup man.
But Jerry's cocky and a hothead, so he makes enemies faster than he can deliver on the jobs.
Whatever bag or case of cash he touches doesn't seem to make it back to Iadavia. But Jerry's resilient and persistent, so he just may get his revenge as well as a chance to go caravan camping with his girl.
