Synopsis

No good deed goes unpunished. Duncan has no intention of getting involved with the crazy lady who lives down the street. But when she has a stroke, his parents insist that he go to her home and take care of her ratty little dog. Her house is a warren of old junk, literally—her husband was a junk dealer, but there are some treasures mixed in. When the woman's nephew shows up to put things in order, she starts to get paranoid, thinking someone is stealing her treasures, and she ropes Duncan into helping her hide them. And that's when things start to go bad.
