DO THE RIGHT THING

Salvatore "Sal" Fragione (Danny Aiello) is the Italian owner of a pizzeria in Brooklyn. A neighborhood local, Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito), becomes upset when he sees that the pizzeria's Wall of Fame exhibits only Italian actors.

The wall becomes a symbol of racism and hate to Buggin' Out and to other people in the neighborhood, and tensions rise.
