The deal depends on the approval of the director of the German tobacco concern for Eastern Europe, von Geier. Aware of the German's infatuation with Irina, Boris asks her to work her charms and convince von Geier to approve of the deal. Irina's love towards Boris slowly turns to hatred as his obsession with money and power grows. As Boris ... Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>
