Two young brothers, both in temporary foster care, look forward to a picnic with Mum but the unexpected arrival of Mum's new boyfriend Greg, has unforeseen and dramatic consequences.What do the boys recognize in Greg that Mum can't?

Gowanus 83 deals with a ex-con's dilemma of resorting to his old ways when he gets into a cab. The film is directed by Michael Wood.

Synopsis:
Ex-con Dame wants nothing more than to leave behind his life of crime. But when he gets into Gowanus Taxi Cab 83, he finds himself in a world of kidnapped Sikhs, Jewish cops, the Black Mafia,a rifle-toting-Oprah-loving drug dealer, and two of the dumbest criminals in Brooklyn. Will Dame have to revert to his old ways in order to save himself in this ridiculous comedy of errors?
