The year is 1922 and the act of prohibition has forced all drinking establishments to close. Without easy access to liquor and establishments, “Speakeasies” such as The Caterpillar Club have sprung up all over the country, however this is the first of its kind in this city.

It’s a usual night at The Caterpillar Club – until, that is, the biggest organized crime boss and mobster in the city, Bulletproof Bill Mahoney, is found dead! Suddenly, the patrons find themselves suspects in a murder investigation that has to kept “hush hush” in order to keep the coppers away and the speakeasy open!
