Set in the summer 1994 in East Rockway, NY, against the backdrop of the Knicks Playoff and the O.J. Simpson white Bronco chase, Rocakway is the story of two brothers, four friends and one shot at the chance to change everything.
Inspired by true events, a man recounts the summer of ’94 when he and his brother plotted revenge against their abusive father. Rockaway is a coming of age drama following two brothers, John and Anthony, who have high hopes of a Knicks Championship and a new, easier life. John relies on his older brother and his imagination for protection from their abusive father. They’ve always had just each other and their secrets, until they meet a group of boys who show them the love and companionship only achieved through the laughs, sweat and tears of sport and boyhood mischief. The type of friendship that makes you feel less alone, gets you through the tough years, and lasts forever.
