Storyline

A young Russian intelligence officer is assigned to seduce a first-tour CIA agent who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young officers collide in a charged atmosphere of trade-craft, deception, and inevitably forbidden passion that threatens not just their lives but the lives of others as well.

Goofs

When the Russian interrogator leaves Dominika, as she picks up her pistol from the table she holds and carries it with her finger on the trigger. This is contrary to basic gun safety rules and it's unlikely that anyone with military or government firearms training would do this, even if the gun is empty. See more »

User Reviews

The arrest of a Russian spy by the FBI this week
19 July 2018 | by Stephanie-NaderiSee all my reviews

Shows how close to truth this film is. It is not a documentary however. It is lots of fun. Has a lot of action, violence and sex (the Russian FBI arrested had moved in with a Conservative leader). The main actor and actress give it their all and put ina fine performance.

Yet nothing is as brutal as the film's beginning where hopes are literally shattered.
