In the City of Brotherly Love, eight-year-old Peter Flood helplessly watches on as his baby sister is killed by his neighbour’s reckless driving. Peter’s father, tormented by his daughter’s death, pays a high price when he seeks revenge – the results of which leave lasting generational wounds that cannot be healed. Twenty years later, an adult Peter (Schoenaerts) still wrestles with the guilt he feels over his sister’s death. As he tries to distance himself from the family business, his cousin, Michael (Hedlund), with whom he was raised, grows ever more powerful in the criminal hierarchy. Bonded by blood, neither cousin can outrun the logic of violence as they’re dragged further into a chilling cycle of betrayal and retribution.
