Irish journalist Luke Sheridan, newly jilted, sets out to cover the story of a poisoning gone awry and ends up in a boisterous party tht moves at the pace of the Keystone Kops set loose in a fun house. From Madame Lala's house of pleasure, with her most alluring "girl" Babysoft, and Count Fustenhalter, the designated murder victim, through gallons of drink and hours of orgy, we are exposed to a multi-bedroom farce of the good, old-fashioned, earthy, laugh-out-loud kind.
