A coming-of-age drama about writer/director Dito Montiel's (Fighting) youth, the film captures the mid-1980's in the toughest neighborhood of Astoria, Queens. Dito (Academy Award Nominee* Robert Downey Jr., Avengers: Endgame) called home after 15 years because his father (Academy Award Nominee** Chazz Palminteri, Bullets Over Broadway) is ill, encounters old friends - the ones he lost, the ones he left behind, the ones he can't help but remember. These are Dito's saints. An honest account of a bittersweet return to a neighborhood where relationships can never be what they once were, Dito's story is about to come to terms with a father's rage and a father's love.

Featuring an all-star cast that includes Academy Award Winner*** Dianne Wiest (The Birdcage), Shia LaBeouf (Transformers), Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Rosario Dawson (Unstoppable), Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station) and Academy Award Nominee*** * Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight)in this "fresh and intense" (Los Angeles Times) Sundance Film Festival Award Winning (Best Ensemble, Best Director) film.

Press Quotes

It positively crackles with energy, featuring startlingly raw performances from a cast that also includes Shia LaBeouf as the young Dito. And if it looks ragged around the edges, that's as it should be.

     —Stella Papamichael, BBC.com

A memoir to remember.

     —Ben Walters, Time Out
