Slip & FallBook - 2007
Robert Principe's law school graduation was supposed to be the moment that transitioned his family from its honorable, but often difficult, blue-collar roots to the supposedly easier white-collar world.However, when faced with a struggling practice, a pregnant wife, and a sister in trouble, Rob realizes the white-collar world isn't as easy as he thought. He needs money ... and fast. Desperate, he approaches his wise-guy cousin Jackie with an insurance scheme -- a way for the Mob to collect from guys who owe but can't pay and a chance for Robert to use his law degree to make a few quick bucks when he needs it most. Rob thinks it will be a one-time thing. It isn't. The scheme works well -- too well. The money flows, the violence escalates, and Robert soon learns that getting out of a deal with the Mafia isn't exactly easy ... especially when the FBI is onto you. Slip & Fall is the story of a good man who makes one very bad decision that might just cost him, and the family he loves, their lives.
