Tailing a Brooklyn tax evader, tax investigator Al Benjamin (Joe Pantoliano) uncovers several murders. Ignoring the police and his tax-office boss, Al teams with rookie cop Joseph Romero (Wade Dominguez). Their efforts to solve the killings lead them to the boss of the Russian immigrant community at Brooklyn's Brighton Beach. The boss' attractive daughter Nadia (Elizabeth Berkley) takes an interest in Al. Joseph and Al succeed in getting a state prosecutor to examine the case, but the key figure in the crime remains elusive. A Raymond Chandler-styled voiceover narration moves the story along.
