***SPOILERS*** Blumbling career criminal Eddie Coughlin, Tom Bosley, really bumbled into deep sh*t by knocking off a hardware store that's a front for one of the mobs numbers operation. This ends up costing the mob connected owner Beal's, Milton Selzer, life when two hit-men were dispatched to rub him out for not keeping the number money locked in his store safe that Eddie checked out with. Now on the run from both the mob as well as police Eddie tries to hide out at his ex-wife Donna's, Sherre North, apartment only to be kicked out on the street by her who want's nothing at all to do with him.

Desperetly trying to get back with his seven year old son Marty, Brad Savage, Eddie is shocked to find out that after not seeing her for over five years that Marty's mom Donna now has a new man in her life that makes his attempt to get back with her a dead issue. Buying Marty a giant panda bear and giving the startled boy, who's doesn't recognize him as his dad, as a present the emotionally destroyed and home sick Eddie then hijacks a motor boat and heads for the only place he can call home the shut down federal prison on Alcatraz Island. It's there at the "Rock" where he spent the best and happiest years of his life as a inmate doing hard time on the rock pile with his fellow inmates whom, together with the kind and understanding prison guards, he considered as family. It's also there where the two mob hit-men, who iced Beal, tracked the bumbling guy down in order to finish him off that's before he told them where he hid the numbers money.

***SPOILERS*** Eddie really got over the law as well as the mob in not only fooling them in where he hid the stolen money but, it seemed that his heart gave out, not having to face the bar of justice. All that running from the police and the mob took everything, including his life, out of Eddie. But he was still smart enough to hide the stolen money that he made sure that both his wife, who divorced and disowned him, and little Marty, who had no idea that Eddie was his father, will end up getting'; Or at least 10% of it!
