Hiding out from Russian mobsters, American criminals Settimo (Dan Hedaya) and Gino (Danny Nucci) pay a visit to their Scottish cousin, Roberto (Gerald Lepkowski). The unassuming Scotsman operates a small restaurant and believes his relatives are businessmen, so he's thrown for a loop when he discovers their true occupation.
