Lola Woodby, recently widowed and blindsided by the inheritance of her dearly departed husband’s mountains of debt instead of his wealth, reluctantly accepts an offer from one of his former girls-on-the-side to retrieve a reel of film.

Determined to earn the promised fee, Lola and her Swedish cook (who refuses to leave Lola’s side until back wages have been paid) enter into a madcap race to find the reel before the killer does.
