Five-Finger Discount
Documentary - 55 minutes
Directed by Steven Fischler
Talkback with Steven Fischler, director/producer; moderated by David Cruz,NJTV
Sponsored by NJTV

Based on Helene Stapinskis blockbuster memoir, the film relates Helenes saga of growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey, in a family nearly overrun with crooks, corrupt politicians, mobster wannabes and murderers. It takes the viewer inside Helenes struggle to confront her family legacy and invent a new identity  without losing where she comes from and the people she loves. The documentary also brings to life 20th century Jersey City, the poster child for the eras urban political corruption. Frank I Am The Law Hague is a key character, and the film shows how his iron rule during his 30-year reign as mayor turned Jersey City into a closed system where power, money and corruption at the top trickled down to street life at the bottom, affecting the everyday lives of working class families struggling to survive.
