Mike Locken is one of the principle members of a group of freelance spies. A significant portion of their work is for the C.I.A. and while on a case for them one of his friends turns on him and shoots him in the elbow and knee. His assignment, to protect someone, goes down in flames. He is nearly crippled, but with braces is able to again become mobile. For revenge as much as anything else, Mike goes after his ex-friend.

The woman is wearing a blue dress, the top of which is open in front and her right breast is clearly and fully exposed. In the next shot (from a different angle) we see that her breasts are tucked neatly into the dress. See more
