Jimmy Markum (Sean Penn), Dave Boyle (Tim Robbins), and Sean Devine (Kevin Bacon) grew up together in a Boston tenement. Dave suffered sexual abuse, while his friends escaped major trauma - until now. Twenty-five years later, the three friends reunite, as Jimmy's 19-year-old daughter is murdered, Sean and his cop partner (Laurence Fishburne) are assigned to the case, and Dave discovers the murder is somehow connected to his own traumatic past.

"Clint Eastwood spins a masterly tale of kinship, memory and murder."
