Retired detective Harry Ross (Paul Newman) is living with movie star friends Jack and Catherine Ames (Gene Hackman and Susan Sarandon) in Santa Monica. When Harry delivers a package for Jack, he finds Lestar Ivar (M. Emmet Walsh) dying after being shot. Harry looks around Ivar's apartment and finds 20-year-old newspaper articles about Catherine's first husband who disappeared 20 years ago. Now, Harry's curiosity is peaked, and he asks LAPD detective Verna Hollander (Stockard Channing) for help in finding answers to the unsolved case. The trail leads to other unsolved cases–including one involving Harry's old colleague Raymond Hope (James Garner) who also runs errands for Jack and just might have the answers that Harry seeks.
