A disgruntled CIA agent quits the service after office politics confine him to a desk job. He heads to Europe, where he links up with a former lover (and fellow ex-agent). All goes smoothly until the CIA agent acts on advice of yet another retired agent, a former Russian rival, who suggests he write a tell-all autobiography. Spitefully, the agent sends out copies of his first chapter to the heads of CIA agencies throughout the world--and from that point on, he and his companion don't have a moment's peace. This delights him now that all of his former colleagues are chasing after him - he has a reason to get up in the morning.
