Lawyer Alex Morrow (Henry Jones) would like to dump his wife, Angela (Kathleen Freeman), in favor of his sexy mistress, Fiona (Linda Lawson), but he draws the line at divorce: Alex owns a valuable stamp collection, and does not want his wife to get it in the divorce settlement. Then one day, Alex becomes aware of the fact that he is being followed by a man named Richard Schausak (Robert Loggia), who happens to be a professional hitman. Seizing the opportunity, Alex hires Richard to kill Angela -- only to have a last-minute change of heart, one that will end up costing him dearly.
