‘Blast of Silence’ Movie Summary
Frankie Bono, a loner/hitman returns to his hometown of New York City during the week of Christmas. He there from Cleveland to kill the mobster, Troiano for money. However, this is not an easy job, and the man who hires Frank warns him that if Troiano or his men spot him before the hit, they will rescind the contract.
Frankie drives to Troiano’s home to kill him, but his bodyguards always surround him. Instead, he heads over to an obese gun smuggler named Big Ralph’s hovel. Frankie and Big Ralph have a history together, and the thought of getting a gun from Big Ralph makes him uneasy, but Frankie doesn’t have any alternatives in the time crunch. Big Ralph can’t produce a .38 special with a silencer until the next day, so that leaves Frankie some free time in the Big Apple.
While mulling his horrible life at a bar alone, his childhood friend, Petey shows up, and convinces Frankie to come to a Christmas party. Frankie reluctantly agrees to go, and there, he’s reunited with his old girlfriend, Lori. Things go well between the two that night, and Frankie goes to visit her at her apartment the next day.
