Set in the 1950s, Leon and Bobby (Stephen Dorff and Brad Renfro respectively) are brothers and members of the Deuces Brooklyn street gang, who have vowed to keep drugs out of their block and territory since the death of their brother Alphonse due to a drug overdose given to him by Marco. Marco (Norman Reedus) is the leader of their rival gang the Vipers, and is due to come back to the area after a 3-year stint in jail. This of course threatens of an imminent rumble between the two rival gangs.
Yet Bobby will complicate things by falling in love with Annie (Fairuza Balk) whose brother 'Jimmy Pockets' runs with the Vipers and deals heroin for them. Who will live, who will die in this street gang ballad of 50's Brooklyn.
