Jerry, a developmentally disabled man, is held captive after he stumbles upon two con men's scam headquarters. The quirky characters who join in a search for Jerry find that all paths lead to his favorite animal, a zoo's lone pregnant manatee. But, will the stress of the search on those close to Jerry lead to bigger threats than those from the con men's sabotage of the region's electrical grid?
