Dito (Downey) is a successful writer in Los Angeles. One day, after being urged by his mother and his friend Nerf, Dito visits his childhood home, Astoria, New York because his father has suddenly become very ill. The film switches back and forth between the present and flashbacks with Dito’s memories in the summer of 1986.
Dito meets Nerf (Peter Anthony Tambakis), and talks with him in a parked car, where they can talk undisturbed, which would not have been possible at Nerf’s house.
Dito then visits Laurie (Rosario Dawson), his childhood sweetheart, who is now a mother. They only talk through the open window; she does not let him in.
Dito finally visits his parents. His father used to ignore Dito’s feelings, and he didn’t want Dito to travel. He is angry at Dito for leaving, and for not returning sooner to visit; he then sends Dito away. Dito does leave but returns later, to insist that he take his father to the hospital.
Dito remembers Giuseppe (Adam Scarimbolo), reckless, destructive, and possibly insane: In the 1980s Giuseppe stood on the subway track; in spite of urgent warnings from his brother Antonio (Channing Tatum) and from Nerf that a train was coming, he failed to get back on the platform and was killed.
One interpretation of the title is that Dito begins to believe that he has been saved from his friends’ fate by his saints. Alternatively, he comes to realize that his saints were his friends and family â€“ Antonio, Laurie, Mike, his mother, and even his estranged father.
