Assassin Dakota Bombay enjoys his playboy lifestyle that he can afford due to his high paying occupation. He has no plans to change it. However, he failed to tell others because his womanizing and hit man existence abruptly ends when a six years old boy is unceremoniously dumped on him. Dak never knew he sired a child.

The Family assigns Dak to eliminate a rival firm at a time he tries to be a good father and is romancing someone who he supplies with clients, a funeral director. However, Dak knows he needs to finish the downsizing of the competition before the family gives his lover a client to bury, him.

The return of the Bombay family, who’s DNA contains killer genes, makes for a lighthearted fun tongue in cheek tale. Bringing in a funeral director into the family completes the process value chain as the final output of the Bombay products would go to her or her peers (family discount for bringing in business). Delightful Dak understands the vision of his family of assassins is kill is or be killed so as he courts his burial lover, he knows he must say to her 'SCUSE ME WHILE I KILL THIS GUY. As wacky as the first, Leslie Langtry provides an amusing Pulp Fiction
