Lenny (Chianese) is a small-time investor who's always managed by rolling the dice on Wall Street, but he just can't keep up with the times. When his luck finally runs out, his best friend Ruben (Latessa) hatches a plan to get them both out of town. But Lenny's not going anywhere. He's got two last rolls of the dice: one for the money, and one for the love of a beautiful mystery woman (Chalfant) that he's fallen head over heels for at the corner of 38th and Lexington.

Lifelong friends Lenny Sugarman (Dominic Chianese) and Ruben Liebner (Dick Latessa), both in their 70s, both dyed-in-the-wool New Yorkers, barely recognize the Manhattan of their youth. The city they've loved for decades has become a playground for the too-rich; their places, the ones they've frequented for years, are now refuges from a changing world they're increasingly unable to keep up with. When Lenny, a lone schemer all his life, finally gets in over his head, he decides to seek the one thing he's never had: true love. But to achieve it, he may have to abandon the only place he's ever known.
