The Cold War is over for most of the world. But Frank Banner (Armand Assante) must rehash it every day. This is because of his top secret work with defecting Soviet spies, a job that resulted in the death of his wife. Now, he is being called in again to protect an ex-KGB official who is on the run from both the Russian Mafia and the CIA. This case, unpredictably, brings him face to face with his wife's assassin in this tense post-Glasnost drama.
