The year is 1971 and Michael X--emerging black activist and budding crime lord--has British authorities over a barrel after he gets hold of sexually incriminating photos of royal Princess Margaret.

Desperate to recover the photos, the government pressures troubled model Martine Love to recruit a team and steal the bank safety deposit box containing the photos.

Meanwhile business is slow for Terry Leather, a London car dealer, married with children. He's an artful dodger, so Martine, who has a thing for him, brings him her scheme: a bank's alarm is off for a couple weeks, so let's tunnel into the vault.

Martine lures Terry in with the promise of millions. But also in their loot is a ledger detailing payoffs made to crooked cops by reputed gangster Porn King Vogel.

Terry quickly assembles a team, not realizing Martine�s real goal is a safe-deposit box with compromising photos of a royal: she needs the photos to trade for avoiding a jail sentence - and MI-5, or is it MI-6, is pulling the strings two steps removed.

Meanwhile, a Trinidadian thug, a high-end bordello owner, and a pornographer also have things stored in the vault, so the break-in threatens many a powerful personage. Is there any way these amateurs can pull it off?

This movie is rated R for sexual content, nudity, violence and language.
