Nick hasn't achieved much in his life. At 35 he has a grotty flat and no proper job. Then an organizer of a women's conference invites him to San Francisco to be a padded assailant, the man inside the plastic who beats up women for a living every day. But Nick has no idea what he's getting into.
Tara wants Nick to become a padded assailant in a women's self defence class in San Francisco. She wants him to wear a protective suit and assault women for a living. Nick agrees to attend. After all a free trip to the USA is not to be sneered at is it?
