Plot & Details

Robert Celestino's drama Yonkers Joe stars Chazz Palminteri as an aging gambler and professional cheat. Although Joe is quite good at his various unethical endeavors, he feels guilt about his chosen profession. He has a grown son (Tom Guiry) who suffers from Down syndrome, and the dad firmly believes that the ailment is some sort of punishment. When the difficult to control son leaves the institution that has cared for him, Yonkers Joe tries to reconnect with him, while also planning a big score that will allow the son to live in comfort and safety.
