That day comes when the mall is struck by a flasher... and Ronnie chooses to do more on the job than just observe and report.  Ronnie’s delusions of grandeur drive him to showcase his underappreciated law enforcement talents, hoping to nab the flasher and win the heart of his elusive dream girl, Brandi, the hot make-up counter girl. However, Ronnie’s actions launch a turf war with equally competitive Detective Harrison of the local police department. Now, Ronnie must not only catch the flasher, but he must do it before the real police can.
