Storyline

The original name of this film was "Code Name: Dancer", and it was originally shown on network TV, this thriller is an effective variation on a familiar theme-the one about the former spy who is lured out of retirement for one more dangerous mission. Kate Capshaw (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) plays the reluctant secret agent; sheâÂEURÂ(TM)s living her new life as a wife and schoolteacher when a mysterious phone call sends her racing off to Cuba to rescue an old colleague. Her only hope lies with a former lover (Jeroen Krabbe) -CastroâÂEURÂ(TM)s top adviser-whom she long ago betrayed in the line of duty. Little does she know that their reunion is a trap.

Kate Capshaw was Outstanding
15 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film starts out with Kate Capshaw, (Annie) playing the role as a wife and school teacher to a loving husband who is very much in love with his wife. However, Annie has a very secret past and was involved with the CIA in Cuba and speaks excellent Spanish and has had lots of lovers as part of her past life. After six years of marriage, all of a sudden Annie receives a telephone call telling her that Dancer needs her help and wants her to go to Cuba. Gregory Sierra, (Vic The Dancer Pena) plays the role as a friend of Annie who saved her life when she was working as a CIA Agent. There is plenty of romantic scenes and I would not call this a thriller, but a very well acted film with plenty of flashbacks that jump back and forth. Kate Capshaw and Jeroen Krabbe gave outstanding performances.
