Our story is about one man's quest to go up against the cities largest and most dangerous coalition group, the SBM, "Survival of the Black Man" coalition. This is an extremely hard-hitting, gritty, modern day "On the Waterfront." A true-to-life voyeuristic view of how both sides of the law is pitted against each other. The story was written by Joseph Ariola, a long time member of the Operating Engineers Union in N.Y.C. Joe hired retired Detective Robert Cea to work on the movie script with him. The story is based on the true inner workings of the police trying to infiltrate the corrupt coalition workers; the mob middle men setting up these coalition deals; the unions trying to organize against impending layoffs due to the cheap unskilled non-union labor; and, one man stuck in the middle trying to battle the mob, killer coalition bosses from his own race, and the pursuit to find his true mission in life.
