Handsome Harry Sweeney (Jamey Sheridan), follows a dying friend’s (Steve Buscemi) wish to set out on a journey to see their former Navy buddies in order to reveal the true culprit of their long-ago collective crime and apologize decades later to their maimed victim. Along his quest for truth and forgiveness, coming to the surface are deeply buried secrets, wrongdoings, and cowardice, which lead the party of young Navy men to brutally beat up one of their own based on a suspicion of homosexuality. Harry is forced to face the reality of his suppressed past, which defines his life in the drama and is an actor’s tour de force of love and guilt.
