Brooklyn's Greatest DVD


Set in both the late 80's and the modern era, BACK IN THE DAY is a gritty tale about Anthony Rodriguez, a half Italian - half Puerto Rican young man growing up on the streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn-- at the time a very dangerous and racist neighborhood filled with bullies and ballers lining the social clubs where all of the local shots were called. Anthony had to endure an abusive, unemployed, alcoholic father but was blessed with a nurturing, hard-working mother who he loses at a very early age and is devastated by it. As he journeys into adulthood with the nearly... impossible goal of achieving a professional boxing career, Anthony manages to not only go pro, but literally fight his way to the top and become a world champion middleweight boxer. But the loss of love, the pain of humiliation, and the fear of retaliation and revenge play roles in his triumphant journey to the top. [show more]
