In this Spanish-French drama, a Turkish diplomat in Soviet Georgia during 1932 attempts to solve the mysterious death of his predecessor. It is based on the book by Belgian author Georges Simenon. Adil Bey has just been assigned to replace the recently deceased consul at Batum, a town on the Black Sea. From his office he can peer into the apartment of a security policeman. Living with him are his wife and pretty sister Sonia who was both secretary and mistress of the previous Turkish consul. Soon Adil finds himself wanting Sonia. Later he begins to fear that he is being slowly poisoned, much in the same way, that the other consul might have died.
