Summary
  • An unlikely trio of women in New York find themselves banding together to escape the clutches of an unhinged Mafia enforcer
  • Brooklyn mob widow Rena Ruggiero embarks on a bizarre adventure, taking off in her neighbor's '62 Impala. Turned away from the Bronx home of her estranged daughter, Adrienne, and her granddaughter, Lucia, she is taken in by their neighbor, Lacey "Wolfie" Wolfstein. When Lucia discovers that Adrienne is planning to hit the road with her ex-boyfriend Richie, she figures Rena is her only way out of a life on the run with a mother she can't stand. But Richie has massacred a few members of the Brancaccio crime family for a big payday. Now Rena, Wolfie and Lucia are running, unsure of what comes next. -- adapted from jacket
