Hapless wannabe Italian hoods, Burro and Zeus inadvertently start a Mafia war after accidentally shooting a go-go dancer in a nightclub, killing her revenge-seeking boss/boyfriend and bungling the disposal of his body.
Alarmed by the nightclub owner’s apparent assassination, Burro and Zeus’ dangerous psycho crime lord boss Mosca consults his trusted confidante: a bronze statuette of a cat called Renato. Fearful of his violent reaction to the truth, Burro and Zeus allow Mosca to come to the wrong conclusion about the murder: that Mosca’s big Mafia rival Don Galante is making a move against him.
Caught in the crossfire of the Mob War that follows, Burro and Zeus must duck and dive to dodge the bullets and stay alive. But when Mosca learns that Burro and Zeus were in fact responsible for the nightclub owner’s fate, he teams with Don Galante and their joint wrath is turned against the talentless two.
With hit men on their tail, Burro and Zeus run for their lives leaving a trail of destruction that takes them from Italy to London and back again; chancing their luck in an audacious plan to turn the tables on the rival crime lords and save their crazy skins.
