Septuagenarian Harry Zell breaks into the home of former cop turned private investigator Manny Rupert. After knocking out the sleuth and reviving him, Harry hires Manny to investigate the claim of a nonagenarian San Quentin inmate who insists he is Nazi war criminal Dr. Josef Mengele.
This intriguing premise ties big government, especially the prison industry, to big business.  Using prisons as warehouses of test subjects experimented on by the unscuptulous, the bottom line is everything. Social, political and economic issues are raised throughout that will have the audience ponder the reason why everything is keep top secret. 


The plot cleverly skews ethical restraints starting with the Mengele “scientific method” applied in modern times apparently by a consortium of CIA, DOD and big pharmaceutical firms.
