Espionage series, explosive cocktail of action, adventures and a change of scenery.

They are young, beautiful and tanned, they are athletic and achieve all kinds of aquatic performance, they are models and present the latest fashionable swimsuits.

They are installed in a magnificent hotel on the Mexican coast, and look more like a small golden youth sample on vacation than a countelewing team, and yet ... They regularly receive their mission orders from a certain Mr. Smith whose office is in New York, somewhere in the depths of the UN building, and which would deny any relation to our young team if of adventure, it was unhappiness to one of them in the 'accomplishment of his mission (does that remind you of anything? If, yes, look well!) ...

The context is that of the cold post-war, and in this era of "peaceful coexistence", where nothing can deteriorate still-west relations, there are many terrorist networks whose interest (ideological or financial) is Rather to maintain discord between the two blocks.

The team, composed in total of six people, includes Tommy Chase, specialist in martial arts, Catherine "Cat" Pascal, Brette Richards, and Krissie Valentine, computer engineering.

Ashley Hunter Coddington, a lovely young Englishwoman, is the only daughter of an ambassador, whose golden youth was broken by the assassination of her mother by terrorists from the "Red Brigade".

She joined the small team of the Acapulco agency, and engages all her energy and intelligence in the fight against terrorism ...
