Slowly, it becomes apparent to Meg that the restaurant is a mob front for dope deals. The tinfoil swans being given customers as they settle their bill aren't leftovers, but filled with drugs. Meg learns that to succeed in this restaurant, she has to smile and unflappably endure come ons by the men and peddle drugs as well as pasta.

Soon, Meg is in over her head. She has witnessed a murder and the mob knows how to keep her quiet.
