Sean Connery stars as an altruistic Arab diplomat in this action thriller set during the oil crisis of the mid 1970s. Tired of the continual East/West power struggle, Khalil Abdull-Muhsen (Connery) proposes peace with Israel and their becoming a full member of OPEC. But before his plans can get off the ground, he becomes the target of every militant Arab terrorist on the block. Enter fresh-off-the-catwalk beauty Nicole Scott (Cornelia Sharpe), who comes to his aid while simultaneously stealing his heart. But in a world of deception, can Khalil afford to trust his new-found friend, or is there something deadly lurking beneath that steely, cool exterior?
