She is fed up with the terrorists who poach Italy’s rich beauty and as part of a crazy scheme to retaliate she hires a former CIA agent, Turi, to abduct the number one violator, Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Catania. Catania is taken to her villa on a private island where he insists that as a man, he cannot go without sex. She relents and hires two prostitutes to pleasure him. Blindfolded and chained, Beppe realizes that the third woman is none other than the woman who kidnapped him and agrees to pay the $100 million ransom but only with a twist.
