"The men in Mario's (Adrien Brody) family all die young, so Mario is desperate to find love. So desperate in fact, that he scares off his latest girlfriend Louise (Holly Gagnier). And being a undertaker also doesn't help him on his quest!
But business is booming, thanks to a ongoing mob war between two families. This war isn't helped any when hitman Rocco kills three opposing family members, unknowingly witnessed by Louise. To protect Rocco, his brother Alberto (Burt Young) fakes Rocco's death, then starts arranging for him to be moved out of the country. Until then however, Rocco needs somewhere to hide out. And where better then Mario's funeral home?
So 'cousin Albert' comes to stay with Mario. Of course, there are soon problems: Mario fancies Rocco's 'Widow' Maria (Kari Wuhrer), Louise fancies the false beard wearing Rocco, a bord Rocco makes a play for Louise, while Mario tries to woo her back.
Just when you think it can't get any worse, hot-headed Maria lets her temper get the better of her in a big way. So Mario rushes to help her, otherwise she'll need his professional services!"
