When beautiful alien Sylvia Eureka and her parents beam into our dimension, they make two other grave mistakes: landing in a TV studio used for the soap opera Three Way Street and landing when media mogul Reynard Dobel is collecting incriminating evidence from a tryst with supermodel Claudia Persettimole.

With now unemployed soapie favourites Bessemer Rune and Lorraine Wrist, Reynard creates an eccentrically authoritarian society on the Three Way Street set to keep The Story of The Century confused, captive and compliant.

But soon the studio is ringed with curious eyes: police, journalists, government agents, trade unionists and The Universal Fellowship of Leslie Cantwellites. Something must be done! Reynard must act.
