Private investigator Daryl Zero (Bill Pullman) is one of the finest sleuths in the world but also one of the most eccentric.

When businessman Gregory Stark (Ryan O'Neal) falls victim to a blackmail plot, he employs Daryl to find the culprit. Daryl starts to home in on Gloria Sullivan (Kim Dickens) as a suspect, but he also finds her attractive, which complicates the case.
