Dr. Mark Katz, a neurotic plastic surgeon who is compulsive obsessive about perfection, but is a good man, finds himself caught in an amazing adventure that cures him. He learns that "chasing perfection is chasing the changing preferences of fools," and that it's our little imperfections that make us individuals. Mark discovers his genius friend, Bogart Hanson, a Nobel Prize winning scientist, murdered. At Bogey's funeral, Mark is kidnapped and becomes a captive of Cherry Hanson, Bogey's widow, at Hanson's Developmental Advanced Technology (DAT) laboratory. The President of the United States plans to assassinate a drug lord, Ferenzi, and wants to use a Bogart Hansen cutting edge of scientific discovery to accomplish it, instead of risking an invasion. The plastic surgeon is married to a psychiatrist, Ricia, who sets out to find him. She is captured by Cherry at DAT also. Mark, meanwhile, is sent with the Hanson innovation to kill Ferenzi, which he must do to save his wife. The subplot is about a model, Ali, who Mark has made perfect inadvertently by removing her famous mole. She loses her job but finds love only to fall victim to cocaine. Mark saves her by using another brilliant Bogart Hansen innovation.
