Comedy set during a weekend in New York and based around a deli run by the Italian-American gambling-addict Johnny Amico. Working for Johnny is Andy, the womanising and hard-working manager; Pinky, the comedian who always keeps the staff amused; and finally Mrs Amico, Johnny's mother. For the last ten years, Mrs Amico has been giving Johnny $10 to play a special weekly numbers game for her, but Johnny has been secretly pocketing the cash instead. So one weekend, when the old woman's number finally does come up, Johnny either has to find the cash or do the unimaginable and admit his crimes.
