Being where the action is, isn't a treat for Kimble, when he's ensnared between a wild daughter and her Reno casino-owner father. The fugitive's trying to lay low as a lifeguard, but sexy Chris' luring boys with free martinis causes a child to almost drown. That drags Kimble into a quick buy-off, to protect the senior Polichek from a threatened lawsuit. The father suspects Kimble is trysting by the pool with the much younger, flirty Chris, which could lead to louder hush money, which neither the casino nor the convicted killer want. Written by

Kimble is working as pool boy / lifeguard at a gambling resort owned by Dan Polichek (actor Telly Savalas), a rich and powerful figure. Polichek is ashamed of his spoiled, drunken, promiscuous daughter, whose mother is deceased. He genuinely loves her and wants the best for her, but they always fight.
Complications set in when she starts making moves on Kimble. This enrages Dad, who envisions higher things for her than a fling with the pool boy. As she continues to pursue Kimble, Polichek proves he is a man who can make things happen, a circumstance that works against Kimble.
Trapped in a desperate situation, Kimble is caught in the middle, and must somehow please both father and daughter in order to free himself.
