He convinces them to accept a holiday to the exotic island of Brazzina where crystal seas and pristine beaches will seduce their minds.
Prior to their departure, Dotty meets the handsome retired Major Milestone whose presence embraces her body in a tsunami of vapors. Alas, he has to reject her amorous advances much to her disdain.
But when the trio arrive on the island and Dotty becomes suspicious when their itinerary changes, she interrogates the tour guide. To her horror, she discovers that Milestone has kidnapped them and assumes it's for his wicked deeds. They have to escape and find Lucas.
Meanwhile and unbeknownst to them, Lucas is a drug lord with his own plans. He needs these silver beauties for hostages against Milestone when his drug eradication unit move in to destroy his opium crop even if it means their demise.
