Fletcher is a crack investigative journalist who goes undercover for a story about possible connections between the L.A. police department and the local drug trade.

He gets derailed when a Santa Monica businessman, Alan Stanwyk, mistakes him for a homeless man and offers him $50,000 to commit a murder.

The man claims to have terminal bone cancer but can't commit suicide if he wants his family to collect on his insurance policy, so he wants Fletch to do his dirty work.

Fletch pretends to accept the offer and finds that it leads him deeper into the heart of his own investigation.
