Lured out of early retirement, master detective Adam Steer partners with the cops of Precinct 13 1/2 to solve the kidnapping of newspaper publisher, ostrich Madam Griselda Portentsky. But the ransom demand may be impossible to meet by the Sunday deadline: deliver the fabled MooMoo Pearl or the bird gets plucked. Not only do murderers and conmen stand in their path, but also the existence of the priceless pearl is in question. As the emotional pressures and obstacles mount to the exciting climax, will Adam and Chief of Police Pork succeed in saving Griselda in this comedy romp?
