Cleveland P.I. Milan Jacovich is back on his own turf and recovering from the death of his best friend and partner. Hoping a new assignment will take his mind off his troubles, he accepts an "easy" job baby-sitting the up-and-coming star of a Hollywood film that is being shot in Cleveland. A wild box-office hunk, Darren Anderson has a reputation for scandalous behavior, and the producer of the movie is depending on Milan to see to it that he doesn't get into any trouble. When Darren seduces the underage daughter of the film's major investor right under Milan's nose, the actor faces possible police charges and the angry father pulls his investment. Milan - disgusted with the actor's reprehensible behavior - quits his job in a fury. The next day Darren is found murdered, and Milan unwillingly finds himself in the spotlight as he becomes both suspect and P.I. on the case in an attempt to clear his name and relieve his guilty conscience.
