It is 1955 at Gracie's restaurant in Hoboken which is frequented by Italian American longshoremen. The year before Marlon Brando came to Hoboken to shoot "On the Waterfront" but that glamorous time is gone forever. The regulars at Gracie's are adrift with failed hopes. The story revolves around Beep ity Beep, a sour, failed singer who wants to reclaim Gracie's affections. He loved and lost her eighteen years before. Their relationship is complicated by a double murder and a secret Gracie has kept all these years. Excellent character roles for the entire cast as all are colorful types.
