Welcome to the retirement home of Henry of Frances, ex-New Yorkers and professional assassins. It is a luxury hotel suite in an idyllic, tequila-drenched Caribbean hideaway. It's supposed to all cocktails and sex on the beach. But when a mob hit on a Mafioso godfather goes awry, trouble hits paradise in the form of a cross-dressing capo, a debauched and savage Irish hardman and a slew of incompetent but vicious US marshals. Mix yourself a Tequila Sunrise and dive into Gone Bamboo.
