Plot Summary

Jean Claude plays an official who's just been appointed as Second In Command to the U.S.Ambassador at an American Embassy in a small, turbulent Eastern European nation. When local insurgents attempt a coup d'etat, the nation's President takes refuge inside the embassy. The embassy is then besieged by the well-armed insurgents. The U.S. Ambassador is killed in the ensuing action, and it's now up to Jean-Claude and the embassy's small detachment of U.S. Marines to fend off the attackers. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia By an odd coincidence, the scenes in which PFCs Zanger and Pazzini plant and detonate a number of package bombs around the neighborhood to distract the insurgents from the US Embassy was filmed on 07 July 2005, the date of the terrorist bombings in London, with the SFX explosions taking place almost to the exact hour of those in the UK. The largely British crew of the film learned of the attacks shortly after during their lunch break, and filming was suspended for the remainder of the day. See more »
Goofs The action is placed in Moldova, but it was filmed in Bucharest, Romania. It is easily to see auto numbers on ordinary cars which are from Bucharest, not from Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. Not even one car has Moldavian numbers. Another goof is people's accent. None of them has Moldavian accent, which, for a native Romanian, is as obvious as one can distinguish between a penguin and a seagull. See more »
