New Orleans, the fall of 2008. While the banking crisis grips national news, two young slackers rob a high-stakes poker game. The local Mob attorney brings in Jackie to clean things up. He's a hit man who likes to kill his victims softly. There's a code at work: Jackie surmises that he has to kill Trattman, even though he's innocent; then Jackie brings in Mickey from out of state, because one of the people who has to die knows Jackie. Can Jackie's methodical, cheery approach to his work put the local underground's finances back in order?
