Enzo is a Sicilian deaf mute employed as a bookeeper by Don Carliani, a Mafia godfather. He was employed, because, being deaf he could not hear anything said by Don Carliani and therefore, could not testify against him in court.
One day, Don Carliani suspects that Enzo had cheated him out of $10 million. He gets his lawyer, who could converse in sign language, to confront Enzo about the missing cash.
Don Carliani tells the lawyer,"Ask him what he did with the $10 million embezzled from me?"
The lawyer, using sign language, asks Enzo what he did with the money.
Enzo signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about."
The lawyer says to Don Carliani,"He doesn't know what you are talking about."
Don Carliani pulls out a gun, puts it to Enzo's temple and says,"Ask him again."
The lawyer signs to Enzo,"He'll kill you if you don't tell him."
Enzo signs back,"OK, I'll tell you, The money is in a brown suitcase buried behind my cousin Bruno's backyard."
Don Carliani shouts,"What did he say?"
The lawyer replies," He says you haven't got the guts to pull that trigger."
