Plot Summary

Ed Okin's life is somewhat out of control. He can't sleep, his wife betrays him, and his job is dull. One night, he starts to drive through Los Angeles, and he finally ends in the parking garage of Los Angeles International Airport. Moments later, a beautiful young lady jumps onto his bonnet and he finds himself being chased by four Iranians. What follows is a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles, and a very funny one too. Written by Harald Mayr

Quotes Ed: [faces SAVAK man in the airport. SAVAK man holds gun to Diana's head] This is ridiculous. Big shot, huh? You got a gun. Now what? Shithead, you. Huh? Maniac. Let me ask you something. Maybe you can help me. What's wrong with my life? Why is my wife sleeping with someone else? Why can't I sleep?
