He and his wife, Patricia (Laine Megaw) share a great passion for drink and dance, but when he meets up with a young women, called Margaret (Laura Fraser), whilst covering the country's first election, his life changes forever.

Margaret is a beautiful and fresh young student and things soon start to flourish between them. However when Dan finds her murdered he finds himself on the run from unidentified gunmen, and is forced to seek sanctuary with a nurse who also performs 'nun-o-grams'.
