Set in the 1950s on the gritty Brooklyn waterfront, A View from the Bridge follows the cataclysmic downfall of Eddie Carbone, who spends his days as a hardworking longshoreman and his nights at home with his wife, Beatrice, and orphan niece, Catherine.

As one of them embarks on a romance with Catherine, Eddie's envy and delusion plays out with devastating consequences.
