In this caper comedy designed for international distribution, Jane (Joan Collins) and Don Giuliano (Vittorio Gassman) are part of a group of currency smugglers who are trying to get their gang's money over the border into Swiss banks. They are following a plan designed by their crafty mastermind Sandro (Jacques Bergerac), but one thing after another goes wrong. When it does, count on the conceited Don Giuliano to make it worse by trying to maintain his inflated sense of himself while he attempts to woo Jane. As is often the case in (Collins) vehicles, she looks glamorous, but viewers are advised that this feature contains an "overacting alert."
