Alphabet City is an 80s crime drama about one of New York City's roughest neighborhoods and the poor souls it consumes. The film follows tough lower East Side drug dealer, Johnny (Vincent Spano). The nineteen-year-old thug finds himself involved with the mob. After being commanded to burn down the building his mother and sister live in, the young gangster decides he has had enough with the mob and it is time to get out before it's too late. But Johnny may have made huge a mistake because the boss marks his next target-Johnny and his family. Not only does Johnny need to rescue his mother and sister from the fire, but the mob is after his wife and newborn baby too. Johnny's future seems short and the options for his family are running out. The only possibility is a daring escape from the dark drug ridden streets of Alphabet City.
