Bored with his perfect suburban life, a bitter ’60s ad man reconnects with his college sweetheart, a prostitute who enlists him in a spectacular act of international smuggling
Harvey Christopher is a successful man. After twelve years on Madison Avenue, he owns a suburban palace complete with electric oven, electric icebox, and an electric wife—all of them highly functional but completely unresponsive to his needs. A brush with a college-flame-turned-successful-streetwalker sends him down memory lane—a road that leads straight to her bedroom. She gives him a tumble on the house, and then offers a proposition: a bit of criminal mischief that will take him far from suburbia, and far from his wife—because every ad-man deserves a vacation.
