Religious mania is the cause célèbre, fertility the ultimate weapon in this spoof of the espionage game.

Eddie Brown, former schoolteacher, is the unwilling agent for a third-rate branch of the British Secret Service. Having been promised a holiday after his most recent disaster, Eddie is less than thrilled to find himself catapulted into the Soviet Union—where he lands smack in the middle of a subversive collective stud farm that specializes in harbouring antisocial types and printing pornographic literature.

Required to undertake a most unusual mission and save the farm from disclosure, Eddie does his inimitable second best.
