Sheppard Earl, a bail bondsman and Terrance Jones, a bounty hunter, work hand in hand with Shep bailing them out and Terry chasing them down. Shep, who is a chain smoking cigarette addict, has financial and marital problems and stress like you wouldn't believe. Terry is a six-foot-six, 285 pound intimidating black man who is very sensitive to the plight of the minorities he is forced to apprehend, but making money seems to always rule in the end.

What happens along the way fills in the story. In the end, Shep contemplates getting out of the business and Terry considers taking it off of his hands.
