Two rival mob families are mistakenly transferred from a witness protection program to the same city. Carlo Serrelli has lived a protected life but his past is about to come back and bite him. His father has kept him out of the deadly mob business by giving him a job at the family dog groomers, while his younger brother, Dominic, always did the dirty work.
All that is coming to an end as Carlo’s father has to force him into an arranged marriage with the daughter of the rival Miola family boss. Carlo’s two best friends, Gina and Vince, vow to help him out of this predicament, but they all get in way over their heads when a serious infection starts eating the town. The good news is that Carlo may not have to get married after all — but the bad news is that everyone might die.
