Plot Summary
In this fact-based film, happy-go-lucky Frank Pesce Jr. (Anthony LaPaglia) is lucky from the day of his birth, when his mother (Lainie Kazan) gives birth to him in a different hospital than planned -- only to have the first facility burn down. Growing up in an Italian neighborhood in Queens, Frank's irresponsible ways and good fortune irritate his hard-working but luckless father, Frank Pesce Sr. (Danny Aiello). When Frank Jr. is the New York State Lottery's first winner, he angers his dad.
