Louise Hartman (Neva Patterson) suspects foul play when her son Billy Jo (Joey Aresco), a professional demolition-derby driver, dies in an "accidental" plunge off a cliff. What has really aroused Louise's suspicions is the fact that Billy Jo had recently purchase a $200,000 insurance policy, a "luxury" he could ill afford. Working on behalf of Louise, Jim (James Garner) checks up on Billy Jo's benificiary Jeannie Szymczyk (E.J. Peaker), who denies ever having met the dead man. Of course, this isn't exactly the truth--and Jim hasn't even scratched the surface of this case yet.
