In New York City, Canal Street divides Little Italy and Chinatown, and a bridge separates Manhattan from Brooklyn. But they don't stop a turf war from erupting among Italian and Chinese organized crime syndicates.There's Manhattan mob boss Al Capella, Brooklyn mob boss Amador Condimento and Chinatown Triad boss Hung Phat. They're all involved in the underbelly of the condiments trade.

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
