When two gunmen &#151 Breakfast (Jason Priestley) and Panda (Bernie Coulson) &#151 enter the jewelry store where Ziggy (Laura Harris) works and rob the joint, she sees an opportunity. With her devoted boyfriend Walter (Gordon Michael Woolvet) in tow, Ziggy follows the crooks and demands a cut of the loot. Next, she proposes that the two gunmen accompany her up north; turns out she's been searching for her long lost father for eight years and has found out he lives in Canada. So the merry foursome set off together, robbing as they go. But when Ziggy and company arrive at the doorstep of her father Frank (Stephen McHattie), it's at a rather inopportune time. He's been fired from his job, his drunken wife has left him, and... he just blew away his landlady with a shotgun. But father and daughter bond anyway, and with the other thieves head to the hideaway of Phil Bishop (Louis Gosset Jr.), a sleazy scam artist who, according to Frank, owes him big time. Soon guns are drawn and everyone's aiming at each other. This is a rather bizarre family reunion film, to be sure, but an oddly fascinating one. Too bad it doesn't have a more charismatic leading lady; Laura Harris looks perky more than poignant.
