Private eye Harry Moseby (Hackman), an ex-pro football player, is a workaholic with an unfaithful wife (Clark). An aging actress hires Harry to find her daughter Delly (Melanie Griffith, her first starring role), a runaway teen who's fled to Florida. While on the hunt, Harry has an affair of his own with Paula (Warren), and he succeeds in locating Delly. Although, his victory is not without consequences, and a mysterious underwater plane wreck further complicates Harry's journey.
