Overview

An aging, diminutive private detective from Harlem works to track down an elusive robber while staving off crooked cops and vicious gangsters in this largely ad-libbed, independent black comedy shot on a shoestring budget by a handful of amateur actors and filmmakers. When local numbers lady (Virginia Fields) is held up by Hi-Yo (Bill Jay) in Central Park, her daughter (Marcella Lowery) hires Super Spook (Leonard Jackson) to track the thief down. Now the closer Super Spook gets to his target, the more he starts to realize that he isn't the only one searching for Hi-Yo. As cops and criminals alike begin to turn up the heat on the nervous numbers runner, Super Spook realizes this is one case that's going to take some serious overtime. He may not be as smooth as Shaft, but Super Spook always gets his man.
