Synopsis
An Italian delicatessen owner in south Philadelphia can no longer tolerate seeing his friends terrorized by local hoodlums. So he forms a neighborhood watch group to right the situation. However, his good intentions are soon overshadowed by his growing love of publicity, and by the vigilantism of the group, who favor beating up the offenders rather than calling the police. When the police and the vigilantes confront each other, a television news team is there to cover the story.
