Living alone with her cat, Kathleen Turner writes romantic novels and cries over the outcome, assuring friend Holland Taylor that one day the writer’s life will pick up for real.

Naturally, Turner receives a package mailed from South America just ahead of sister’s phone call that she’s been kidnapped and will die if Turner doesn’t deliver the contents of the package south of the border as soon as possible.

Heading for the jungles in her high heels, Turner is like a lot of unwitting screen heroines ahead of her, guaranteed that her drab existence is about to be transformed – probably by a man, preferably handsome and adventurous. Sure enough, Michael Douglas pops out of the jungle.

The expected complications are supplied by the kidnappers, Danny DeVito and Zack Norman.
