“What a drag it is getting old.”
Rolling Stones

Iffy and Willie “used to be somebody ’round here” in Spanish Harlem; they “commanded respect.” Now, in middle age, they make ends meet by commanding ransom money—or at least, they try to—dognapping pedigrees and waiting for reward posters to appear on telephone poles in the neighborhood. And Willie (Paul Calderon), he shakes down deadbeats as the first string offense for a never-seen loan shark named Chucho, while Iffy (David Zayas), he just kinda shakes down children for their lunch money, by operating the neighborhood candy store.
