Ex-accountant Frank Fontana is the bartender at the mob-owned Skyview Lounge near LaGuardia airport. He secretly witnesses the murder of his boss, who has left behind a ledger of drug deals that could put a lot of people in jail. Now Frank is caught between the cops, hitmen, and his sexually voracious, scheming wife, who wants to use the ledger to extort a fortune from the Godfather, a homicidal chocolate addict. If Frank isn’t very, very careful, he’ll get a fatal kiss off.
