However, the followers of that cult want their ritual treasure returned, and kidnap Jackie's best friend, Lorelei, as ransom. Jackie borrows the pieces of armour from Bannon to use as bait to rescue Lorelei, but Bannon will part with them only if his beautiful daughter May goes along to guard the treasure. Meanwhile, Lorelei's fiance Alan insists on going along as well. Together, they work out a plan for Jackie to rescue Lorelei and complete the armour collection.
