Bivši zatvorenik Frederick Frenger zvan Fred (Alec Baldwin) pokušava krenuti ispočetka odlučivši se nakon izlaska iz zatvora preseliti u Miami. Međutim, već u zrakoplovnoj luci upadne u nevolje nakon što slomi ruku pripadniku pokreta Hare Krishna, pa ovaj naknadno izdahne od šoka. Ne znajući da je nehotice ubio čovjeka, Fred započne svakodnevni život upoznavši lijepu i priprostu prostitutku Susie (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Odavši se ponovno krađama, ni ne sluti da je policija pokrenula istragu o ubojstvu čovjeka u zrakoplovnoj luci koju vodi malodušni detektiv Hoke Moseley (Fred Ward)"
Based on the late Charles Willefords series of hard-boiled crime novels featuring Miami cop Hoke Moseley, the Jonathan Demme-produced Miami Blues opens with the prison release of Frederick Frenger Jr. (Alec Baldwin), a deranged killer who has barely de-boarded his plane before hes killed a Hare Krishna in the airport. Checking into his hotel, Frenger meets up with Pepper (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a young prostitute with dreams of domestic life; the two become romantically involved. Meanwhile, the Hare Krishna murder case is given to Moseley (Fred Ward), a grizzled vet who quickly hunts down Frenger only to have the killer beat him senseless and steal his badge. With Moseley incapacitated, Frenger is free to continue his crime spree, this time with the benefit of police credentials. Finally, Moseley recovers and tracks Frenge to a pawn shop, leading to a bloody confrontation culminating in the shop owner (Shirley Stoller) chopping off Frengers fingers with a machete.
