Frank Jabroni – Public Enemy No. 9
PRODUCER: Alessandro Paci
Franco Giabroni is a modest Italian filmmaker obsessed by only one thing: directing an American
Right in the worst period of his professional career, Franco receives an inheritance from America from his Uncle Jack. His now deceased parents have always described his uncle as a great American movie producer, but he was actually an Italian American mafia boss.
As his last wishes, Uncle Jack has dictated that his heirs will only obtain their share of his huge estate if they succeed in “saving” the only honest Jabroni, their cousin Franco, who will have to get on the Ten Most Wanted list of the Providence police.
Once Franco arrives in America, convinced he’s fulfilling his life dream, he finds himself not heading a
film production company, but being part of a notorious mafia family. Among the members of the family
the person most suitable to take his uncle’s place seems to be Maria, a beautiful, shrewd woman without scruples.
Maria involves him in a series of criminal events like bank robberies, loan sharking and gambling. Initially Franco, who by now has become Frank, is convinced he’s on a film set and takes part in all of these events in spite himself.
When he finally realizes that what is happening is not fiction, it’s too late.
