Bob works for his cousin Marv, after whom the bar is named. Marv is superbly played by the late, great James Gandolfini. And, not unlike his most famous role as the complicated mafioso Tony Soprano, Marv has deep reserves of criminal malice as well as a sense of familial loyalty. While his crooked schemes may appear petty compared to those of Tony, a similar calculated brutality underlies his burly exterior.
One night, a pair of masked thieves bursts into the bar after hours and makes off with wads of drop money. The robbery leads to an intricate web of crime and double-crossings, revealing the truth surrounding past misdeeds in the neighborhood.
