Recently, they've been trying to move in on each other's turf and tensions are high. And when a Chinese guy starts poking around and tries to join the MOB, the double-crossing begins.Despite being Chinese, young "Vinny" Chow embarks on a personal quest to join the Italian mob so he can get the Italian girl of his dreams, Tina Di Pocco, who only dates Wiseguys. In his many attempts to prove himself mob-worthy, Vinny is ... Written by Mark V Wiley
