Restricted shell with execution permission on a file

I've created a user which shell is the restricted one (/usr/lib/rsh), but I've realized that the user cannot execute a script !!!
The scope was to allow the ssh access to a user that could not access to any other directories but there that user should be able to run a script that retrieves the data that the user needs and anything else.

Is there a way to modify the .profile in order to allow the user to run that script?

Hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance.

P.S.: need to add that I didn't find either the profile files. I'm logged into as the new user, and I can't find the .profile .bash_profile .bash_logout files in its own directory (Sun OS server) ....

Thanks again
