Inspired by true events, Blue Collar Boys is a story of five ignorant working class boys from New Jersey filled with hate.  It is a coming of age story that revolves around Charlie Redkin (Red) a 25-year-old construction worker born into a blue-collar life and suffering the hardships that go along with it.

Red, Nazo, Mason, Irish and Slim are the lifelong friends, a family through blood and loyalty.  They work for Red’s father, Douglas Redkin (Senior) the epitome of a hard-working, honest  man.  The family falls victim to a particular local contractor – Schlosser Developing – who pulls the strings of all those sub-contracted beneath them, and work hand-in-hand with corrupt politicians to ensure their upper hand over everyone concerned.

Motivated by financial hardship, Red and his lifelong friends fall into a lifestyle of hatred and thirst for revenge. Together, they are faced with a dilemma that will test their morals, faith, and ultimately, their loyalties to each other. In a world that refuses to let the working man thrive, they want a better way.

With a number of short films, including Milking The Chicken, and Shadows Over Sugar, as well as two docs, written, produced and directed by Mark Nistico, Blue Collar Boys is Mark’s first directorial feature film.  A graduate from The College of New Jersey (degree in English/Film Production) Mark freelanced in television before forming Silent Sea Productions, his own film and video production company. Mark is also credited as writer for feature scripts Decade of Decadence, Lime Vegas, and Sunrise on a Moonlit Life.
