After a day of filming her popular "Window On The World" television series, hostess Katherine returns to her hotel room to find Clifford, an ex-CIA agent who reveals a saga of a worldwide organization that seeks to destroy the economic stability of every major country. Katherine seizes this opportunity to become a "real journalist" like star reporter Jerry, against the direct orders of news director Carl. This is a rather messy film, both in dialogue and body count.
