Synopsis

Comedy. Years ago, American state trooper Charlie married his childhood sweetheart, who was unfaithful to him, having an affair with the family's black limousine driver, producing a set of male triplets in the process. To add insult to injury, Charlie was then left to raise the three boys alone. Now eighteen-year-olds, the boys tower over their father, a meek, self-effacing soul. However, there is another side to Charlie - a mean, vengeful cop called Hank. Charlie is diagnosed as schizophrenic, but still allowed the supposedly routine task of escorting a young lady called Irene to New York for questioning regarding embezzlement charges against her ex-boyfriend. However, the trip turns into a surreal one when `Hank' starts showing up much too often. Some corrupt cops take to the road to catch up with Charlie - as do some of his concerned colleagues along with his three sons.
