This remarkably smart manager is on top of the world, no wonder why!

After all, his administrative routine includes deceiving employees, by luring them into getting the job done for very little money and promises never intended to be kept.

However, when he decides to apply such routine to this particular young worker, by sending him to an island devastated by corruption, violence, and crimes, his life becomes a sea of horrors.

But what kind of event can cause such ruckus? That’s right, a woman.

Cesar is a naive and idealistic young man, a simple but honorable guy. And he has just gotten this dream job in a huge multinational company, which includes, not limiting to, business trips to distant, exotic places, all with big, fat bonuses waiting for him when he gets back. Or so he thinks. Unfortunately, reality is nothing like in the brochure.

Naturally, Cesar idolizes his new boss, the almighty branch manager, a real gentleman in his simple conception. Little Cesar knows he’s about to embark in the most terrible world of hurt, a garbage dump for country, an isolated island called Mogda, to execute a crap, underpaid service.

His witty, charismatic branch manager has everything figured out, so Cesar delivers a heck of a job - after all, he’s a very competent young professional - in a place nobody wants to go, for peanuts and a tap on the back. Note: the tap on the back is optional. A practice fully condoned and even encouraged by the manager’s superiors in the corporate headquarters.

However, it happened one night. While drinking with job colleagues in a bar in Mogda, Cesar meets this woman. She calls herself Bliss. Oh, and she is everything her name says and more. Our working class hero has found heaven in hell.

Little he knows Bliss is actually Tatiana Razzini, the daughter of Franco ‘Rib-Crusher’ Razzini, feared, violent, most wanted top mob boss in the New York crime underworld.

But, unexpectedly, the simplicity of Cesar and his friends melts her stony heart. And, of course, she falls madly in love with Cesar, who by the way is completely unaware of his new girlfriend’s day job.

And Bliss got problems of her own. A traitor in her crime organization threatens the family domain in the island profitable trafficking of drugs and weapons. Such feud may lead to a bloodily war between mob families in New York and Chicago.

As Cesar doesn’t want to accept he’s being scammed by his boss and his corporate cronies, something Bliss suspected right from the start, our dear miss gangster takes to herself the task of solving both their problems. But she needs a fall guy. Would that be Cesar? Of course not, she loves the guy. What about the super star branch manager?

So, Bliss had no choice but to play a deadly, extremely risky game between the monkey businesses of a powerful conglomerate and the furious violence of bloodthirsty rival mobsters, disorganized crime versus organized crime, a deadly Russian roulette that might easily get Cesar and herself killed.

Who can possibly win when an unintentional Jimmy Hoffa meets Casablanca?
