Advertising executive Gary Fenn enjoyed a carefree life in 1960s London. He is popular with everyone and has a weakness for women. He is currently working on a new campaign with the Hungarian top model Marla, but it turns out that a Marla overheard the planning of a political assassination by accident and is therefore being pursued with the aim of killing her. The perplexed Gary doesn't really know what is happening to him when he is chased by both criminals and the police who try to accuse him of a crime.



"Cumbersome series crime thriller with the usual clichés, whose poor story was forcibly drawn to the length of a feature film."

"When 007 was only good enough for the first digit."

“English crime comedy that presents pleasant entertainment despite the lack of suspense. Well suited for ages 16+. "
