Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

Lutz (Patrick Schoene), is a self-proclaimed East German sailor-spy who has jumped ship while in Long Beach harbor so he can prepare the way for a planned Soviet invasion. Lutz is a handsome, musclebound type who attracts a following as diverse as a mixed salad: a rotund mother and son whose affection for hamburgers, fries, and ice-cream is self-evident, a gay pimp cum door-knob collector, an attractive call-girl from the Temple of Dance Arts, and other flotsam and jetsam of the human condition. The antics of this troupe enliven the film as they head to Madame Wang's punk show, where Lutz shows off an eccentricity of his own. Finally, Lutz has to return to his ship before his "spying" episode is discovered.
