Borelli II lives in the the suburbs with his wealthy father and mother.
Each summer, his parents go on a cruise and Nicholas goes to an exclusive
summer camp. Well, this year will be different. Just days before
they are to leave, a call from camp tells of an exploding septic system
that shuts down the entire camp. Now, scrambling for a place for
Nicholas to spend the summer, one surprising solution is found. Young
Nicholas will spend time with his grandmother in Brooklyn. He has
never been there. It seems as if his father just turned his back
on his boyhood home and never returned. Now, Nicholas will be introduced
to life in an Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn. Complete with goombas,
wiseguys, and even some danger.
