Don't Drink the Water

by Woody Allen

May 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, 1985

Plank Road School

While returning home from a European tour, caterer Walter Hollander, his wife Marion and daughter Susan have an unplanned stop in Vulgaria. There the family accidentally wanders into a restricted area and takes photos for Walter's new hobby of photography and are caught and ensued by Krojack, the head of the Vulgarian secret police, who suspects espionage and attempts to arrest them. The tourists, however, are granted asylum in the American Embassy, temporarily supervised by Axel Magee, son of the ambassador. There the Hollanders meet mad Father Drobney, who for six years has enjoyed sanctuary within the embassy's confines.

Although the United States attempts to rescue the family by repatriating Vulgarian agent Grey Fox, he commits suicide before an exchange can be negotiated. When middle-aged student agitators picket and bomb the embassy, Magee accidentally thinks up an escape plan that Susan forces him to share with the rest of the family. The Hollanders dress up as dignitaries and attempt an escape, but when the escape fails, Walter and Marion don the robes of a visiting sultan and his harem and rush out of the embassy. Susan happily bids her parents farewell and secures diplomatic immunity by marrying Magee. . .
