The film follows the adventures of a spy named Roy Miller, who bumps into June Havens in Wichita. June is informed that the flight is overbooked and is recommended to get the next flight. Roy meets her again and the gate and tells her that sometimes thing happens for a reason.

FBI Agent, Fitzgerald is monitoring Miller’s movements and believing that June is working Miller uses his authority to put June on the flight in the last minute. It is believed that Roy has gone rogue and stolen a new invention called Zephyr, a battery that never runs out. FBI is hunting for Roy and June is somehow dragged in the middle of it, so June has to make a choice whether she wants to run away with Roy or get killed by the bad agent inside the FBI.

The film is quite amusing and entertaining. Nothing’s really new about the plot. I love that they use tracks from Gotan Project in the film (That’s one of my favorite group). Overall I find it’s enjoyable to watch. “With me – Without me”, what a catchy phrase!
