Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Ron Perlman, Mia Sara, and Robert Vaughn star in this period comedy concerning a neglectful gangster father and the troubled ten-year-old son who strives to botch dad's dealings with a dangerous gangster. 1930s-era gangster Charlie (Perlman) was never too big on father/son bonding, and as a result his ten-year-old son, Archie (Myles Jeffrey), has grown to become more than a little unruly. Unfortunately for Charlie, the day he sets out to clear a debt with Benny (Vaughn) is also the day he's left to care for the mischievous Archie. A feared Mafia kingpin whose notorious lack of patience has resulted in him sending more than a few small-time hoodlums to sleep with the fishes, Benny is a no-nonsense businessman who doesn't take kindly to childish games. When Archie gets in the way of Charlie's desperate efforts to clear his name with the dreaded gangster, the wrath of Benny sends both father and son running for their lives.
