When Rachel, a radio personality, discovers a Purple Heart at a garage sale she decides to find out its history. She finds that the medal belonged to a man named Harlan Erickson, a long-lost brother of the town's leading citizen.
Poor film helped somewhat by terrific actors. Canadian reporter infiltrates Moscow to cover criminal trial of anti-Soviet dissident accused of espionage, getting involved in espionage herself after a prominent female doctor asks her to take Soviet medical reports to the West. In the lead, Geneviève Bujold gives this clumsily-written script all she's got: curious and cynical, she seems to come with a built-in b.s. detector. Michael York (with a shaky Russian accent) is the romantic Comrade who may or may not be on her side, Colleen Dewhurst is the enigmatic doctor who works at "the Institute". Perhaps cast because of her feisty work as a female doctor battling mysterious adversaries in "Coma", Bujold is asked to do a reprise here, however the budget and the brains of a good mystery story are sadly missing. *1/2 from ****
