Terrorists have hijacked an offshore oilrig residing in British waters, planting sticks of dynamite at each of the structure's feet.  There are more than a thousand workers aboard the rig, all of whom will perish unless Lou Kramer (Anthony Perkins) receives a £25 million ransom.


Rufus Excalibur ffolkes (Roger Moore) is an eccentric millionaire and counterterrorism expert, dispatched by the Prime Minister to thwart Kramer's scheme.  Officials are skeptical of ffolkes' grandiose plans, but ultimately trust the misogynistic cat-lover's abilities.
