In this ostensible combination of a psychological drama and film noir, Pavel Mosz (Onno Molenkamp) has survived a KGB attempt at killing him off, after they frame him for a murder he did not commit. It seems Pavel is an emigre from Prague, a dissident the KGB would rather eliminate than tolerate. But after the failed murder attempt, Pavel suffers a case of amnesia -- and this time the KGB decides to provide him with a fabricated past to their own advantage and sets about to convince him to commit an assassination. Unfortunately, the script does not quite measure up to the good work in photography, musical score, and acting that do distinguish this first feature film by Jules van de Velde.
