The main protagonist Michael Corben is mistaken for a CIA agent of the same name. Michael Corben meets Areola Canasta at a casino in Orenburg. She is the girlfriend of villain Augustus Steranko. After losing a game of Baccarat, Steranko sends Areola to kill Corben. Areola then smiles with a smug look of satisfaction.
At a hotel Areola Canasta bribes a bellboy to gain entrance into Michael Corben's suite. She successfully seduces and undresses Michael. Whilst he lies on the bed, eyes closed, Areola removes a box hidden beneath the mattress. Opening the lid a scorpion crawls out and onto his thigh. Presumably assuming her fingers are inching closer to his briefs Michael opens his eyes. "Excuse me," says Michael Corben. "I'll be right back!"
The scorpion flies into the air as Michael Corben runs to the bathroom to look for a condom. Areola loses sight of the scorpion. She nervously searches on and around the bed. Michael locates a container of "combat condoms". While Areola walks along the bed the scorpion falls from the ceiling into her nightgown. A terrified look appears on her face as the lethal scorpion stings her inside her nightgown. The scorpion is stuck at her upper back in her nightgown, out of reach like an itch. She screams, stumbles back, and bumps into a stereo, turning dance music on. Michael mistakes Areola's struggle for a seductive dance. He divides his time by watching her and trying to open a container of condoms. Areola's efforts to seek help from Michael are fruitless - he is oblivious to her plight. Areola pulls at her gown and runs around flailing in an panicked effort to get the stinging scorpian out. In pained exaustion, she collaspes back onto the bed. She barely pulls herself up, now moaning in agony. Meanwhile, a henchman named Ziegsfeld (sent by a rival to Steranko) arrives at the hotel to kill Michael Corben. Ziegsfeld is outside the door of Michael's suite he hears Areola scream. He assumes she is having sex with Michael. Ziegsfeld then fires a rocket at Areola and the bedroom bursts in flames. Michael is thrown across the bathroom into the tub. He slowly steps out and finds Areola's charred skeleton on the bed.
