We meet Naomi on the last night of her 25 year marriage to Holbroke, a cabinet-level British diplomat. Tonight Naomi has been unable to put dinner on the table because she inadvertently put a cassette recorder into the microwave (instead of the meatloaf). Holbroke explodes too, and she is tired of being put up with, so she arranges for her friend to take care of her husband and leaves – to try to pick up her life where she left it 25 years ago.

This is not easy. 25 years ago she was an up-and-coming actress in New York. But she bravely heads for the Cannes film festival where she meets Billy Rust, an American director trying to package his next film. She persuades Billy to give her an audition after which he agrees to give her a screen test in New York – and then falls asleep, leaving her tied to a chair in his room, as her big scene in his film demands.

Naomi escapes and manages to get to New York, but when she walks into Billyʼs loft heʼs lying dead on the floor and sheʼs a suspect in his murder. Before she can be arrested for homicide, however, the NYPD anti-terror squad wants her because of the taxi she took coming in from the airport. Foiling the plot requires Naomi to confront her father and other frightening people from her past. She renders the city a great service. But it still may not be enough to relaunch her acting career.
