Set in both the late 80’s and current day, “Back in the Day” is a gritty tale about Anthony Rodriguez (William DeMeo), a half Italian – half Puerto Rican teenager growing up on the streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, then a racist neighborhood filled with bullies, big shots and social clubs where all of the neighborhood shots were called. Anthony had to endure an abusive, alcoholic father but was blessed with a nurturing, hard-working mother whom he loses at a very early age. In spite of the odds, he struggles to uphold the morals his Mother taught him and retain his dignity. Anthony is taken under the wing of a local mob boss, Enzo DeVino (Michael Madsen), who along with his boss Gino (Alec Baldwin) supports Anthony’s wish to escape his demons through the sport of boxing. Enzo unites Anthony with a trainer, Eddie “Rocks” Trevor (Danny Glover), who turns Anthony into a contender. As Anthony journeys into adulthood with the nearly impossible goal of achieving a successful professional boxing career, he manages to not only go pro, but to fight his way to the Middleweight championship. Love and loss, humiliation and retaliation all play major roles in his journey, but when he finally makes it to the top he realizes that the real fight was outside the ring.

IMDb

PAUL MAGUIRE (Nicolas Cage) is by all accounts, a decent man. A contractor by trade, he is a pillar of his community, and a family man. His wife VANESSA (Rachel Nichols) and his daughter CAITLIN (Aubrey Peeples) adore him. But it wasn’t always this way. Paul is actually a reformed criminal who still keeps in touch with his old associates, especially KANE (Max Ryan) and DOHERTY (Michael McGrady).

One night Paul and Vanessa go out to dinner with some friends, leaving Caitlin at home with her friends Mike (Max Fowler) and Evan (Jack Falahee). In the middle of their dinner, DETECTIVE ST. JOHN (Danny Glover) enters the restaurant and tells him that something has happened to Caitlin.

Evan and Nick tell the police and Paul that they were watching TV with Caitlin, when several Russian men barged in and took her. They fought – but the Russians overtook Mike and Evan. Eventually, Caitlin turns up dead, and Paul’s world collapses all around him. Several years earlier, before Caitlin was born, Paul and his buddies robbed a Russian gangster and stole millions of dollars. Paul used the money to go legit and believed they had gotten away with the robbery — until now. Convinced the kidnapping is long-overdue retaliation for the crimes of his youth, Paul ignores the police and mounts his own investigation, against the wishes of his old crime boss FRANK O’CONNELL (Peter Stormare)

Paul and his buddies shake down and rough up anyone they can find who might be connected to CHERNOV (Pasha D. Lychnikoff), the legendary mob boss whose money they stole seventeen years earlier. O’Connell pleads with Paul to stop his rampage, but he refuses. Vanessa, who initially backed her husband’s search, now fears he’s becoming the killer he once was. But there exists another possibility: perhaps he has always been a violent man and can never truly leave that life behind.
