    • Synopsis
    • In Chicago, Illinois brothers Sonny “Shakes” and Vinny “IQ” Bonino work for notorious Crime Boss Bruno. Not the most dependable bookies, the brothers have always looked out for each other. They had everything going for them until one too many deals went wrong, putting themselves in quite a few sticky situations.
      One sure bet at the track will square them with Bruno but as luck would have it, yet another blunder occurs and Bruno takes a huge loss. After a hit is ordered, their Uncle makes a deal with Bruno. The brothers must leave Chicago for good and they can keep their heads. So, Bruno decides to simply cut them loose but not before one final bungle sets a series of events in motion that even these two can’t run from.
      On the lam to Philadelphia, their differences, secrets and lies begin to drive a wedge through their relationship. Throw in an ex-wife and a son and the chaos ensues. But Sonny and Vinny will have to set aside their differences, face their fears and embrace their truths to work together in order to keep their lives.
      More missteps in Philly create a domino effect of mishaps that lead them caught right between a Columbian drug deal and the FBI. One final showdown will force them to learn the true definition of Brotherly Love.

      This buddy mob dramedy is a twist on a classic story that will leave you laughing and rooting for the “not so bad” guys. On an adventure to save their lives, two wise guy brothers try to right some wrongs, face some truths and learn the true definition of Brotherly Love. But like any good wise guys, their bad luck doesn’t run out and a series of botched incidents lead them on an adventure that reveals secrets and tests the very foundation of their relationship. Wrought with suspense, drama and comedy, this is a great film in the likes of Analyze This, The Family, The Whole Nine Yards, Married to the Mob and Midnight Run. As lies surface, and motives are questioned, the brothers, who don’t see eye to eye, end up on the lam, in over their heads and out of their wits. Trusting each other to survive will take a lot of Brotherly Love.
