Based on the novel Simple Simon by Ryne Douglas Peardon

A renegade FBI agent (Willis) must protect an autistic boy (Hughes) who has cracked a secret government code. Willis smirks his way through much of the movie's action-packed scenes. Perhaps he's giggling at costar Baldwin's attempts to play the serious villain.
