Sylvester Stallone portrays Cosmo Carboni, the oldest of three brothers living in 1940s era Hell's Kitchen, a rough area of New York City immersed in poverty.  Cosmo earns a living as a panhandling con artist; his muscular brother Victor (Lee Canalito) hauls blocks of ice, while Lenny works as a mortician.


Cosmo convinces Victor to enter the underground wrestling circuit, initially to Lenny's dismay, who fears for his brother's safety.  Victor proves to be a champ, and Cosmo rakes in the cash.  Just as Cosmo begins advising Victor to retire, however, the once skeptical Lenny falls victim to greed.
