Summary
Likable family man and smalltown diner owner Tom Stall is living his life, minding his own business. Then an act of heroism puts him in the media spotlight. Certain people take notice - Made men from Philly who are dead sure that Stall is the ex-mob assassin they want to find and kill. There may be a real case of mistaken identity, but then again, Tom may actually be a stone-cold killer
