Synopsis

'Doctor Ezekial' Baker and his accomplice Shorty tire of the 'three-card scam', after being chased once too often by an angry crowd. Turning their attention to real estate, they sell mythical plots of land for a non-existent resort. Things are looking good until the two teenage grandchildren of one of their 'investors' begin to track Doctor and Shorty across Jamaica. Part adventure story, part detective story, "Doctor's Orders" leads to an exciting show-down and an unexpected turn of events for more than one of its characters.
