Italian policeman's daughter Cardinale visits New York City to seek the assistance of police captain Hudson, who once worked with her late father, in returning some stolen gems to their rightful owners. She explains that she was involved with an international jewel thief but is now

repentant. The two fly to Austria, where Hudson seeks out the local authorities and persuades them to afford him the professional courtesy of explaining the sophisticated electronic surveillance system installed in the burglary victims' villa. He and Cardinale subvert the system and enter the

villa, opening the safe and returning the gems. However, Cardinale has actually seized the real gems--never stolen in the first place--and substituted the fakes she had shown Hudson. She then attempts to involve him in another similar scheme, whereupon he discloses that he had been wise to her

from the beginning; loving both Cardinale and the thrill of criminal adventure, he has elected to be her partner. Cardinale turns contrite, averring that she prefers a peaceful life as a policeman's wife, but Hudson turns trickster and snares her into continuing their adrenaline-rush criminal

career. Like many another heist-caper film, this one suffers from apparently having had critical parts of the plot left on the cutting-room floor. The English dubbing is poor, and Cardinale's body language is far more understandable than her verbalizing.
