Synopsis
20/20 Mike is a two-bit street hoodlum whose nickname is suppossed to indicate that he possesses an instinct for foresight and self-preservation. Torch, Mike's unlikely white half-brother, is an unreliable junkie -- only 20/20 fails to notice this obvious fact. When a heroin heist goes bad because of Torch's itchy trigger finger, the two brothers are forced into hiding from a local crime boss. 20/20 telephones an old pal, Tony the Tiger, to help him out of this jam. But what 20/20 doesn't realize is that Tony works for the mob boss they're hiding from.
