This West German spy drama moves along a fairly predictable course that begins when French industrialist Bernard Corain (Bruno Cremer) is asked to determine whether Heinz Steger (Heinz Bennent), an East German ex-intelligence officer, would be willing to defect. On his next business trip to East Germany, Corain discovers that yes, indeed, Heinz and his wife are willing to leave. After consulting with the authorities in the West, Corain returns to help smuggle Steger and his wife out of the country -- but things get fouled up, and the flight to the West is not going to work as planned.
