Plot Synopsis:

Comedian Richard Pryor once again proves his agility as an actor (Lady Sings The Blues, Blue Collar) in Some Kind of Hero as Eddie Keller, a Viet Nam P.O.W. who returns home to a world he no longer recognizes. His wife has moved onto a new man; there's a daughter he didn't know he had; his mother confined to a nursing home with bills mounting and no work prospects, Eddie hatches a plot to get-cash-quick. But there are unexpected consequences when the local mob gets involved. The supporting cast includes Margot Kidder (Superman) as a hooker with a heart of gold; Ray Sharkey (The Idolmaker) as Eddie's P.O.W. cellmate; Ronny Cox (Beverly Hills Cop) as a sympathetic colonel; and Lynne Moody (TV's Roots) as Eddie's confused wife.
