The funeral of a cop is about to begin in a Brooklyn. The deceased was killed in the line of duty during an assassination attempt on the Pope

Among the mourners is his pregnant mistress who may not be permitted to stay. Was the deceased a hero or just a poor slob in the wrong place at the wrong time?

"The characters ... are Brooklyn Italians.... Their ethnicity runs a distant second to their universality; their appeal is their humanity. Sometimes, they are very funny, too" ~ N.Y. Times
