A down-and-out film producer agrees to make his nephew's film about the 19th century English statesman Benjamin Disraeli. They can only get financing if he can cast a well-known action star. However, production is halted when the lead actor is kidnapped from the European film set. The producer hatches a scheme with a struggling creative executive to save the star and the movie.
