Max Dugan is an elderly ne'er-do-well whose tenuous mob connections have made him persona non grata with his daughter Norma McPhee. Struggling to raise her restless son Michael on her own, Norma is none too pleased when Max returns to the family fold with yet another portfolio of get-rich-quick schemes. Forced to leave town due to the investigative habits of cop Brian Costello, Norma's new boy friend, Max does one last good deed to renew the faith of the disillusioned-with-life Michael.
