Howard Caldwell, a middle aged attorney and lobbyist, in his pursuit of money and political power, decides to combine business with pleasure and takes twenty-three year old Julie Wheeler to Los Angeles, where Howard is meeting with his partners to examine an illegal arms shipment headed to a country in South America.
Julie Wheeler is a somewhat sexually precocious girl occasionally having misgivings about taking advantage of Howard. In fact, it is she who is being taken advantage of. A mixture of patriotism compels Julie to sleep with the enemy, Carlos, who she falls passionately in love with.
Carlos, who wanted to be left alone working and farming, joined the rebels after his mother and an older brother were killed by his governments’ troops. He now wants to stop the illegal sale of arms to his country that is giving the monsters the power to rape and kill. Unfortunately, Carlos is not smart and becomes a terrorist.
The non-scruples attorney and lobbyist can handle anything, terrorists, betrayals, affairs, congressional hearings on the illegal sale of arms, but his life will never be the same due to one thing, a memory.
