The plot synopsis: Sympathy Jones dreams of being a super secret agent but she's stuck as a secretary until, one day, a confidential file is accidentally left on her desk. When she discovers that the file contains information about a plot to overthrow the government, Sympathy seizes her chance for adventure and fame.
