Newspaper reporter extraordinaire Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher (Chevy Chase) gets news that he has just inherited a plantation in Louisiana from an aunt.

It soon becomes clear to Fletch that his plantation is rather run down. Shortly after his arrival, Fletch begins to suspect that his aunt was murdered and there is a lot of interest from people willing to buy his run down mansion.

In the meantime, Fletch sleeps with his realtor who ends up dead as well and Fletch is charged with the murder.
