Huge oil reserves have been discovered in The Chagos Islands and O.P.E.C. is pressuring the Chagosians to join the cartel.
A CIA agent, who gets caught in all his own booby traps and security measures, and an under Secretary of State, whose life appears to be run by her libido, are sent to a safe house in the mountains of Virginia to begin negotiations for the U.S. to place the Chagos Islands under their protection. Except, no one knows who the islands' representative really is. Could it be the stranded televangelist, his innocent secretary, the ex-marine caretaker or the mysterious neighbor?
What a comedy!
