Storyline

Light goes through your retinas. Foggy, blurry light. Are those… cherry trees? The branches mix with flashes of liquors of all sorts.

As you stumble up, something in your pocket bothers you. (Take out your wallet, look at your cards.) 

Who’s that? Could you have taken the wrong jacket?

Oh oh – you’ve been with dangerous people lately. Friends of Al Capone and Conrad Labelle. What if it’s theirs? Oh no, no… OK. Just remember the place, drop the jacket incognito, and you may live another day! Think!
