Early on, Violet's dad gets in a brief, comical fist fight with another guy over a girl they're both interested in. There are various robberies, burglaries, and break-ins, as well as a kidnapping. The Japanese art collectors are being threatened with violence to property and people's lives over a missing painting. Decades earlier, the last person to possess the painting committed suicide -- or was he murdered? Now thugs are after Violet, her dad, and their Japanese friends. There's one scene with a lot of gunfire, but nobody dies.
