Sammy Lagucci is a Brooklyn-based criminal who would only change his life for his little daughter. When he finds out that the gangsters he's related to are plotting to take him down, he enters the witness protection program to protect himself and his family. Ending up in a small Wisconsin town, he finds himself a good stand-up comedian and succeeds. But what should be a blessing turns into a curse as your fame grows, putting your new identity at stake.
