(read full description below)





A young wannabe archaeologist and his best friend set out to dig up all the bodies of the dead mobsters who built Las Vegas. But how will the mob of today feel about the bodies of their ancestors being unearthed? Find out in Mark Aloysius Kenneally’s new mob comedy which proves that some things from the past are better left buried in the dirt. Jokes, mobsters, and the lives of two men, a fiancée, and a sharp female cub reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal are all on the line in this bold new comedy. Sure, Indiana Jones went up against Nazis, mad Russians, and Voodoo Witch Doctors, but even he knew better than to mess with the mob!
