But the changing culture of their neighborhood has forced them to close. With the blessing of their wives, they move both their families to a small town to open a new shop.

As it turns out, one of the local cowboys is a Wiseguy in witness protection. He is not happy with the attention that is now being brought to the town. Will the people he’s hiding from now find him?
