Storyline

A "world-class screw-up" private eye finds his world and his attention changed when he is reunited with his estranged 11-year old son. At the film's beginning, Le Mat is a down-on-his-luck gambler with the mob on his heals. When his son, whom he abandoned ten years earlier, is suddenly thrust upon him, he struggles to right his life. What follows is an absurd caper flick. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>
