This film is based on the Andrei Borodin documents which revealed that Nazi Germany planned to assassinate Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill during the 1943 Teheran summit. A German agent named Max Richard was in charge of the hit but failed miserably due to counter-espionage work of Allied spy Andrei Borodin. As the story continues, Andrei meets a French woman [Marie Louni] during his stay in Teheran which results in an intense but deadly affair. Meanwhile, Nazi agents are hunting down all those who failed in the assassination attempt.

Many International critics agree this is the best Russian film of the '80s. While most genre fans will appreciate the expertise and intense hardboiled action, perhaps the main appeal here is the last screen appearance of Evelyne Kraft, the cult actress who found success with MIGHTY PEKING MAN, DEADLY ANGELS and LADY DRACULA.
