Synopsis / Plot
Frankie and Russell, two not-too-bright ex-cons, are hired by John "The Squirrel" Amato to disrupt a high-stakes backroom poker game, rob the players and frame someone else for the job. That someone else is the card game's manager, who's suspected of staging a previous poker robbery. Unfortunately, the game was under the protection of the mob, whose lawyer is ordered to find those responsible and take care of them. He hires hitman Jackie Cogan to track down the small-time punks.
