In Philosophy for Gangsters, press notes state, "Mafia heiress Callie Rizzoli has her MBA. She’s bringing modern business efficiencies to her Family operation. But when she kidnaps a philosopher and he shoots to number one on the FBI’s 'Most Wanted List,' things start to get hilariously complicated."
