Ex-gangster Fernand receives a call from a dying friend, a mob boss nicknamed "The Mexican." The doomed mobster talks Fernand into taking care of some criminal business and looking after his soon-to-be-married daughter. When a longtime mobster heavy Volfoni takes exception to Fernand for being an outsider, they come after Fernand who is equal to the task. In a series of comical killings, he defends himself from the onslaught of the mob.
