As a washed-up child detective clinging to past glory, Abe Applebaum drowns his regrets in booze and minor mysteries until a teenager begs him to solve her boyfriend's murder. Plunged back into the world of awkward teens, candy conspiracies, and his own unresolved trauma, Abe faces his greatest case yet: confronting his fading legacy, untangling a dark web of secrets, and proving, maybe even to himself, that he's not just a "kid" anymore. "The Kid Detective" is a darkly comedic blend of coming-of-age story and neo-noir thriller, reminding us that sometimes the greatest mysteries lie within ourselves.
