'MOB WIFE, A Mafia Comedy' centers around Debra Delbono, a mob wife in the 1970's, who longs for the life she once had. A time when her husband, Tony, thought more about her and less about the stresses of being the Captain of the Staten Island Mafia. Through a series of mishaps,
miscommunications and near-fatal misunderstandings, the two finally rekindle their love - Now,
they just need to stay alive long enough to enjoy it.
