Synopsis by Robert Firsching

This paranoid Australian thriller from director Gideon Amir concerns the theft of a dangerous device by evil scientist James Hughes (Jon Cypher). The inventor, Eddie Powers (Edward Albert), teams up with a researcher (Leigh Taylor-Young) to prevent its sale on the global-arms market. Like most of its ilk, this film posits a noble scientific goal (in this case, a revolutionary brain-surgery tool) resulting in near-catastrophe, but it is at least well-made and competently acted by its veteran cast.
