Journalist Ann Baurer stumbles on a top secret conspiracy
involving biological weapons. These weapons are virus carriers
- aggressive, virtually unstoppable and numbering in their
thousands - African killer bees. An unscrupulous doctor is
smuggling live specimens back to America on a passenger plane.

(Mr Baurer) is called Mr B! HA! HA! HA! Get it?
