A movie about Syracuse, by Syracusans, for Syracuse
This film is both a love letter and breakup letter to the city of Syracuse. Anyone not from this city should still identify with what happens. Anyone not from this city will still sense a familiarity of the topics discussed. Anyone not from this city will still laugh, even if they don't know why. It is that enjoyable.
But if you ARE from Syracuse, you will identify exactly the story being told and the feeling permeating the film. You will recognize the truths it exposes, even if the film is, in itself, not a truthful work. You will cry because it is so funny and, when it is being raw and honest, find that all there is for you to do is laugh.
When you love a place you are saddened all the more by its flaws. This is a story made out of love and hate. Joy and disappointment. Hopefulness and defeat. It should be mandatory viewing for all Syracusans, young and old, long-time residents and new transplants alike.
