But one day he is visited by the police and challenged to provide an alibi for a date five years previously when he is alleged to have been identified as getaway driver in a robbery.

He tries to obtain alibi's from a MP he once had an affair with and from his friend Steve who inveigles Galaxy into seducing a woman, Steve having placed large bets that Galaxy can bring her to orgasm for the first time. Being unsuccessful in attaining alibis in both cases he receives a five-year jail term, the whole affair apparently a frame-up by an old enemy.
