Philip Marlow, a one time cop and with an unfortunate habit of being too honest and too broke for his own good, takes the job of protecting a former mob accountant on the run. When two hit men arrive in town he has to do some fancy dancing to keep his client safe and breathing. With the help of Anne Riordan he makes a deal with the mob, but nothing ever goes according to plan, or does it?
