Fallen Arches follows street-smart Duke (Louis Ferreira) as he tries to save his younger brother from a mob boss' anger after the theft of his merchandise. Duke is trying to save up the money he earns as a bartender to send little brother Frankie (Carmine Giovinazzo) to college after their parents prove to be deadbeats. Frankie, trying to help the family, steals a shipment of 65 pairs of handmade Italian shoes, bound for Nicky "Cap" Kaplan (Richard Portnow). Nicky needs these shoes because of his deformed feet and he puts a hit out on Frankie. Duke teams up with former cop Charlie (Peter Onorati) to patch things up with the boss before Frankie ends up with a pair of concrete shoes. Ron Cosentino directs the 1998 crime drama that garnered the Silver Award at the 2000 WorldFest Houston for Independent Theatrical Feature Films - First Feature.
