A super-secret faction of the French Police have been assigned to protect a visiting ambassador from Turkey, as well as his wife and daughter. It seems that the Turkish delegate is in Paris to sign a deal for a new jet aircraft that will be used in a war, and a Vast Criminal Organization is out to stop the deal at any cost. Enter Hanin, a bovine, chain-smoking hero, who inserts himself into the action with a series of brutal, violent fistfights which usually leave him bloodied but nearly always the winner. And when he’s not fighting off hordes of enemy agents, he finds time to romance the lovely Mehlica, the daughter of the Turkish ambassador.
