The Long Island Wolf

A Film by Julien Lasseur


Johnny is a down on his luck Hustler with a bad habit of using a crowbar to solve his problems. After conning his way into a risky partnership with a Long Haired, Loud Mouth criminal, Johnny and the Loud Mouth sign up for a mysterious job for legendary Mob Boss- the Long Island Wolf. The unusual encounter with The Wolf convinces Johnny to change his ways to something more passive but he just can’t seem to
escape his violent nature.
