The Boston Underworld is too small for all of them. And there's only one big prize left. It's about to go under. All the smart operators have gone to jail, and all that's left behind are the eccentric whacks and nut jobs deemed unworthy of being put behind bars. From Napolitano who runs the North End with the belief that every room is bugged, to Mr. Million, who is so insecure he needs constant reassurance, to a rampant gang that can't take directions from anyone, simply because they can't hear a single thing- their preferred method of communication is sign language which leaves everyone asking, just what is going on? Out of this melting pot of eccentric and dysfunctional criminals, ambitions arise and inevitably clash. With less and less up for stake, there is a sense of urgency for everyone to grab what they can and make a run for it before the underworld is shut down for good. As time runs out, attention turns to the biggest horse race which everyone knows is fixed, but just what is fixed? While everyone zeroes in on cashing out on the fixed race, they unfortunately become oblivious to the big con that is being laid out, leaving open the question of just who gets to take off with the big payday!
