The beautiful, blonde granddaughter to an aged, sickly, wheelchair-bound grandfather tries to recruit a reluctant Lovejoy to be part of his great enterprise aimed at the liberation of all the great artworks of the slowly dying city of Venice before the ravages of humidity, pollution, and the rising Adriatic cause them irreparable damage.
