1940. Los Angeles. Laura Newlin is a normal girl, apart from the fact that her father is a mobster. As times get tough, Big Jim Newlin needs some help and Laura tries to become part of the business. However, because she is a girl, Newlin overlooks her, literally throwing her ideas away and shutting her out. Fed up, Laura decides to make her father see what she really has to offer. She hooks up with private eye Mike Callahan, a thug with a lusty eye, to do her will for a certain chunk of change. The kidnapping, escape, and hideaway all go according to plan, but not quite how Laura expects.
