A hardboiled aging private eye is hired to find and protect a missing government witness sought after by the gangsters. The witness is a beautiful French woman and even the cops can't be trusted. The case is tough, but so is Chandler.
Chandler is a private eye. It's a hard way to make a living... and an easy way to die.
