When Chaz suspects that his wife Joey is on to his scam, he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unfortunately for Chaz, she doesn't die in the plunge. Clinging blindly to a bale of Jamaican pot, Joey Perrone is plucked from the ocean by former cop (and current loner) Mick Stranahan. But instead of rushing to the police to report the crime. Joey enlists Mick's and to help her stay "dead" and haunt her husband. Meanwhile, Chaz's cold-blooded partners in pollution grow uneasy about his ineptitude and increasingly erratic behavior, and Mick discovers that six failed marriages haven't killed the skewed romantic in him after all.
