In this feature film, two hardheaded New York detectives invade the City of Lights to unravel a high-fashion counterfeit investigation.
The fashion world of Paris is not ready for Luis (Luis Guzmán) and Eddie (Edgar Garcia), two NYPD investigators recruited by a fashion agency to track down the thief who has stolen its latest handbag designs. Barreling through the fashion shows, nightclubs, and hipster cafes of Paris, these two strangers in a strange land must use their wits to track down the elusive thief and collect a large bounty that would change their lives back home.
