Michele (Knots Landing) Lee and Justine (Family Ties) Bateman are a mother and daughter visiting Paris. With her video camera, Bateman unknowingly captures a murder on tape. That leads to her abduction; pretty soon, it's Mommy, get your gun.
All in all, the film is a fairly desultory distaff remake of Roman Polanski's Frantic. But it does have a police inspector (François Dunoyer) who looks like Jean-Paul Belmondo and a French henchman who looks like the giant in Twin Peaks.
