Al Miller is a sad case, someone who can't seem to lift himself up from his stagnant and disappointing life. He's a self-proclaimed nobody, a used car salesman with a lot full of junkers.His elderly landlord, Jim Fergesson, has decided to retire because of a heart condition and has just cashed in on his property, which includes his garage, and, next to it, the lot that Al rents. This leaves Al wondering what his next step should be, and if he even cares.Chris Harman is a record-company owner who has relied of Fergesson's to fix his Cadillac for many years. When he hears about Fergesson's sudden retirement fund, he tells him about a new realty development and urges him to invest in it. According to Harman, it's a surefire path to easy wealth. Fergusson is swayed. This is his chance to be a real businessman, a well-to-do, respected gentlemen, like Harman.But Al is convinced that Harman is a crook out to fleece Fergesson. Even if he doesn't particularly like Fergesson, Al is not going to stand by and watch him get cheated. Only Al's not very good at this, either. He may not even be right.
