French sex symbol Brigitte Bardot stars as Penny, a scatterbrained young lady who is a beautician to the wife (Denise Provence) of British security chief Dumfrey (Andre Luguet). Harry (Anthony Perkins) is a young man of Russian origin enamoured by Penny--who is more than what she seems. Harry has just lost his job at the bank and begins dealing with his father's old crony; a Soviet agent (Gregoire Aslan) attempting to get ahold of certain British documents containing NATO secrets. Dumfrey uses Penny and his wife in an attempt to uncover the Russian espionage operation.
