When investigative journalist Alf Winters and his beautiful girlfriend Melissa Jones return home to New Zealand, they narrowly escape death when their home is blown up. Clearly Alf has stumbled across a secret that somebody wants to keep hidden - but what? Unable to convince Evans, the local tough cop, that someone is really out to kill them, Alf and Melissa are forced to solve the mystery themselves.
The conspiracy plot is mostly an excuse for chases, capers and crashes galore, all imbued with plenty of pell-mell shenanigans (this time heading north in a red Falcon) by Goodbye Pork Pie director Geoff Murphy. The movie marked Temuera Morrison’s first big screen starring role.
