A local lawyer tells the story of Eddie Carbone, a head-strong longshoreman who has developed an unwitting sexual attraction towards his niece, Catherine. The Carbones play secret hosts to their illegal alien relatives, but Eddie gets jealous when Catherine begins dating one. In a desperate attempt to split them up before they can marry, he betrays both cousins to the Immigration authorities, breaking an unwritten code within his own community. This timeless tragedy touches on themes of blood loyalty, justice, betrayal, sexuality, and societal ethics.
