Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by Ernest Volkman and John Cummings. In 1978, mobster Jimmy ''the Gent'' Burke orchestrated a robbery of an estimated $8 million from Lufthansa at New York City's Kennedy airport. After the heist his dimwitted crew is pursued by a determined cop who waits while the goofy goombahs start to self-destruct. The situation turns violent when the powerful Gambino family bosses demand that Burke kill his gang in order to keep them quiet.
