Dark comedy follows the misadventures of a mafia boss and his family after being placed into a witness protection program.

Giovanni Manzoni, a stereotypical New York City mafia boss, is moved to an unassuming town in France along with his family by the FBI after snitching on a former associate. Life under the guise of a witness protection program proves to be easier said than done for the Manzoni family, however, as their inability to break free of their old ways leads to the blowing of their cover and subsequent encounter with undesirable elements of their past.
