Plot – Spoilers:
A former American soldier Frankie is scrapping together the remnants of his life following a horrific tour of duty in Vietnam. His wealthy father disowned him when he married a girl of his choice (Cathy) and now he’s broke, about to be evicted from his squalid apartment and is saddled with a mutant baby he feels no connection with.

He roams the derelict streets of Staten Island trying to evade mobsters he owes money to while dealing with junkie-friends and pimps who have no age-restrictions for their prostitutes. As the pressure of finding food and money for his nagging wife back home intensifies, Frankie begins to melt.
