WAITING FOR DUBLIN

by Roger Tucker

synopsis

Chicago Nightclub – New Year’s Eve 1944. Lt. Mike Clarke celebrates the night before shipping out to Europe as a fighter pilot. After too many drinks he meets a stranger, Vito Massucci, who suckers him into making a $1,000 bet. The terms dictate that Mike must become a "war ace" by shooting down at least five enemy aircraft. However, after sobering up Mike realizes the figure was changed to $10,000 (enough to buy a nice house in those days) and also that Vito’s uncle –who witnessed the contract- was none other than the notorious Al Capone! The beginning of an absurd and exiting adventure.
