After refusing the mission adamantly, and realizing that his marriage is falling apart he takes his last paycheck and buys a one way ticket to Paris France. Upon arrival he has a nice dinner with lots of wine and jumps in the Seine attemting to commit suicide. His attempt is a failure and he is rescued wet cold and miserable and taken to the largest mental state mental hospital in Paris where he falls in love with Laochi a Vietnamese beauty, who is so uninhibited that she shows him a hole in the fence in the back where she takes him skinny dipping in the woods. Ben assures the penniless Laochi that he will help her return to Vietnam to take care of her ailing father and little brother. meanwhile Laochi is released and is accepted in a catholic convent where she waits for Ben to fulfil his promise. Upon release from the hospital he is referred to an Islamic charity agency where he quickly befriends the owner a wealthy eccentric Egyptian who promises to become his mentor and show him how to live a happy life.

Ben them seeks refuge in a small Paris mosque where he seeks advice from the Imam who panics and tells him to turn himself in to the police. Ben does that and is promptly arrested.

a court date is set and the trial of the century begins which stirrs the debate about immigration reform and foreign nationals commiting crimes on French soil, with both the prosecuting attorney and the defense making passionate speeches outlining their POVs. At last Laochi and Ben are acquitted and freed and they are flown to saigon where the Vietnamese government gives them 10 acres of land in the highlands to build a resort. on top of that the US embassy contacts Ben about a reward for killing two most wanted fugitives for killing an FBI agent and posing as CIA agents.
