Two Soviet sailors, Peter and Sergei, go ashore in Liverpool to spend one night on the town. Peter can speak a minimal amount of English but it's enough to make contact with two Liverpudlian natives, Elaine and Theresa. Elaine and Peter immediately fall in love with each other, but the night is short and they must leave with the ship. Elaine can't forget him and writes a letter to Soviet General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev, asking him to make it possible for them to reunite.

She would have contacted the Foreign Office, which is the authority dealing with foreign affairs and international matters in Britain. The casual viewer might easily confuse the two, but Elaine, who has recently dealt with them, would not make this mistake. See more
