Set in the 1950s a recently divorced ex-mobster begins noticing his 7 year-old sons inclination towards ballet. In a community where such things are ridiculed and shunned Big Tony is forced down an existentialistic spiral towards truth justice love and understanding.

Tormented over the recent divorce of his wife BIG TONY is blundering through life distracted and lost. When he comes in contact with the suspicion that his son has a new interest in ballet he seeks refuge in a parade of characters. Ranging from his ex-wife to his ex-gang and even as far as his own god. He eventually breaks down and comes to terms with a hard lesson in truth love understanding and acceptance....

(New York, or Italian accent needed) ferociously truthful and vulgar Big Tony’s Ex-wife. She knows Big Tony (and his tendencies) like the back of her hand.

She’s a strong ferocious woman, and is content with her new found independence… unlike Big T. Comparables: Maude Lebowski from The Big Lebowski

Old mobster type (should be able to do a New York or Italian accent), Think DeNiro with more comedic expressiveness and physicality. A worn-down single father living in an archaic hyper-masculine community of ex-mobsters. The weight of his recent divorce and his son’s new found hobby, spirals him into an existentialistic crisis.
