This hilarious comedy takes place inside an
American embassy behind the Iron Curtain. An American tourist, caterer by trade,
and his family of wife and daughter rush into the embassy two steps ahead of the
police who suspect them of spying and picture-taking. But it's not much of a
refuge, for the ambassador is absent and his son, now in charge, has been
expelled from a dozen countries and the continent of Africa! Nevertheless, they
carefully and frantically plot their escape, and the ambassador's son and the
caterer's daughter even have time to fall in love.
