A petty drug dealer disappears, presumed killed. His Cousin Epi, who works security and has ambitions to become a private investigator, is determined to find out what happened to Harry. Is Harry really dead?
Epi enlists the aid of his policewoman girl-friend and goes about the task of behaving like he imagines a private investigator should behave. Asking questions, following clues, belting people and getting belted, and even finding time to take his girlfriend out to dinner at Melbourne’s finest Greek restaurant.
Despite fending off his ex-wife, having his son for a weekend visit, dealing with sarcasm from all sides and surviving getting shot at, Epi manages to advance the investigation and discover the terrible truth about Harry.
