Jessica is celebrity guest on Italian cook Bernardo Bonelli's TV show. Bernardo is terribly rude to his Salvadorian assistant Manuel Ramirez, a good friend Lorna Thompson. The Bonelli's are starting up a restaurant, but are out of capital and targeted by mobster Paul Avoncino's racketeering, while Bernado refuses to flirt with studio manager Alex Weaver's wife, food critic Diane. When both Bernardo and Paul are murdered, Jessica has to do NYPD's job for Detective MacKenzie.

Please, Philip, don't be naive. Do you really think they can protect us from being victims of a hit and run, or me falling accidentally out of a 10-story window?
You've been watching too many gangster movies. You know that.
