But the eager d'Artagnan soon finds himself in trouble, barging into three different Musketeers on his travels and agreeing to a separate duel with each one the same afternoon.

So, at Charlton's suggestion, he gets a job delivering office supplies for his friend Leroy (Charles S. Dutton). 

Meanwhile, Charlton's ex-husband Bob (Dennis Boutsikaris) has fallen foul of South American drug lord Rico (Hechter Ubarry), who kills him for photographing a murder. But before his death, Bob had time to send the evidence that will convict Rico on to Charlton in New York. When Rico finds out, it makes Charlton his next target, and he and his henchmen head to New York where they kidnap her to force her to give up the evidence. Luckily, Dundee is on hand to rescue her, with the help of a street gang he recruits to provide a diversion.
