Clinton and Nadine are the lead couple who muddle through a murder mystery tale linked to illicit Contra fundraising.

Andy Garcia is Clinton, a parrot smuggler who stumbles onto his brother’s slaying and foils murderers’ attempts to escape with a backpack containing some audiocassettes.

Clinton also came away from the crime scene with a purse belonging to Nadine Powers (Ellen Barkin), a hooker on the run from the refuge of his brother’s home. Lonely and confused, she is drawn reluctantly into Clinton’s attempt to track down those responsible for the murders.

By the time the pair become lovers, one hardly cares and problem is compounded when the story becomes bewildering as everyone is transposed suddenly to Costa Rica for the denouement.
