The Philippines have some surprises in store for Joe Hale (John Saxon) when he lands in Manila to help get an advertising firm back in order after a bit of mismanagement by an old friend of his, Phil Seaver (Ken Metcalf). Although Joe enjoys the company of women, he has had his marital fiascoes as well (two divorces) and is not exactly eager for romance, though not against it either. This attitude opens him up to the advances of two different women, neither of whom are likely to be holding him to a permanent relationship. But the third possible liaison suddenly takes on aspects that Joe could not have anticipated. Before this growing attraction is acted upon, the young woman in question discovers that Joe might be her father -- a shock that precipitates an investigation into the past for the truth about the young woman's parentage, and her mother's previous relationship with Joe.
