Sleepers - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Four boys, living in New York, had every day free. After years of boredom, they devised a prank on a hot dog vendor. They stole his cart, not planning on taking it far, but accidentally almost killed a man with it. Sentenced to 9-18 months at a reform school for assault and reckless endangerment, they are in for the worst time of their lives. Tortured, beaten, and raped constantly by the guards, headed by Sean Nokes, all innocence is lost. Years later, Tommy and John, the two boys that failed to overcome those horrible months, now hit men and drug addicts, notice Nokes eating at a table. In front of everyone, they blast him away. Lorenzo, a journalist, and Michael, an attorney, come to their defense, finally ready to reveal the horrible circumstances they went through at the reform school.
