The wife of Eastern bloc scientist Helmut Chertolov (Joseph Campenella) requests that the IMF help her husband to escape and defect as she herself has done. She fails to mention, however that her husband is loyal to his country and does not want to defect. Rollin (Martin Landau) sets up the escape by posing as a high official with a will of iron and a taste for high life, who first plants seeds of doubt about Chertolov's loyalty, then volunteers to re-educate him. He recommends a stint in the same prison where the scientist's de-activated colleagues are languishing, useless, to scare to the man into his senses and turn him into a loyal citizen again. Chertolov is indeed horrified to see his fellow scientists listless, hopeless and even mad. He was told that they had been "transferred" to other projects. But he still cannot bring himself to believe that the system in which he has put his faith is hopelessly corrupt. But Rollin is there to open his eyes to what his superiors' system is really like, no matter what it takes. Eventually the IMF leads a disillusioned Chertolov back to his wife's arms, a sadder but wiser man.
