Proper, refined Lauren and loud, brash Sandy meet in an acting class and immediately dislike each other. Soon after starting the class, they each start seeing someone, unaware that it is the same man, Michael Sanders. They find this out when Michael disappears, supposedly having been killed in an explosion. But the women begin to believe that Michael has faked his death and form an alliance in order to find him and make him chose between them. During their cross-country search, they are chased by CIA agents and Russian assassins, and when they do find their boyfriend, he tries to kill them. They find out that Michael is a double agent, working for the CIA and the KGB, and is on the run from both after stealing a dangerous bio-weapon and a large amount of money. Michael eventually takes Lauren hostage, but she escapes, and by the time the whole ordeal is over, Lauren and Sandy have become genuine friends.
