Great movie with plenty of action and intrigue.
1 December 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Alone at a satellite monitoring station in the Alps, Peter accidentally taps into a secret spy station and watches a man get killed, but he has no idea where in the world it happened. Thousands of miles away, a boy's ham radio hobby puts the boy in touch with Peter and together they solve the murder. Lots of action, with plenty of twists and turns.
