A life-long Brooklynite struggles to convince his ridiculous neighbors that a mysterious box left in the middle of their street doesn't prove one of them is a dangerous terrorist. - It's a quiet Sunday morning in an up-and-coming Brooklyn neighborhood. Naive manchild Johnny (Johnny H. McMahon) stumbles upon an anonymous box in the middle of his dead-end block. The other residents of Schenectady Street gather to nervously investigate. What's in it, and who left it? Good-natured. Steve (Anthony DeVito) struggles to be the voice of reason as local loudmouth Charlie (Jack Haley) fans the flames of post-9/11 paranoia. Speculation turns to accusation as prejudices and crackpot theories turn neighbor against neighbor. Is Johnny's farfetched story about the box correct, or is there an even more fiendish plot behind it all?
