It’s 1932, prohibition has swept New York, and Tony Morino owns a small underground speakeasy in the Bronx, selling bathtub gin so steeped in ethanol it could easily kill you. Business is terrible, so along with three friends, he hatches a plan – take out life insurance on the drunken, good-for-nothing new employee at his bar, Michael Malloy. After one of them pretends to be Malloy’s brother and fake documents are forged, the crew successfully take out $68,000 of insurance on Malloy’s life, and the three get to work on murdering their target.

There’s only one problem: the man is impossible to kill.
