When second rate Philadelphia P.I. Lenny Stucco gets a call to look for the missing heir to a coal baron’s inheritance, he jumps into action by doing what he does best…going through the motions and milking the job for all it’s worth. He arrives in the picturesque Pennsylvania mountain town of Jim Thorpe to find the only clue to the missing heir is a worn and questionable birth certificate footprint. He also finds himself making enemies with the local Fish cops, members of the missing heir’s family and the lawyer who hired him. Lenny is generally not getting along well with others. As he stumbles into finding the person he was hired to look for, Lenny unintentionally sets into motion an unforeseen chain of events that could have deadly consequences for the heir—and himself.
