An undercover narc (Jeffrey Nordling) rips off some drug dealers for a big pile of money. They find him and try to persuade him to return their cash. In the course of this discussion, Nordling stops breathing.

Some months later the criminals' vicious leader (Tim Daly of Wings) becomes convinced that the cop's widow (Lauren Holly of Picket Fences) has his money. So he cleans up his appearance and starts to woo her, quickly unleashing the passion locked away in this prim parochial-school teacher.

You know, I think I saw an episode of Love Connection with the same premise. Chuck Woolery was flabbergasted. Well, you must admit it's a little far-fetched.

Romance, thuggery, utter implausibility...you can't ask for more than that from a USA movie. Joe Pantoliano and Alice Carter costar.
