"Serrano D’Angelo (James Barbour) is a street-smart renaissance man, and mob enforcer, who’s recruited by the notorious Don Reyo to polish his crude and foul-mouthed nephew, Vinnie," according to press notes. "Serrano must teach Vinnie how to be charming enough to seduce the beautiful daughter of a judge who sits on a case involving Don Reno; if Vinnie succeeds, the judge would have to recuse himself from the case. But soon after Serrano accepts the Don’s challenge, he learns that the girl Vinnie must seduce is none other than Rosanna, the love of his life!"
