Synopsis:
An intelligent and intriguing Cold War thriller directed by Jack Gold in which Elliott Gould and Trevor Howard star as deadly rivals from across The Iron Curtain. A top scientist, Lucas Martino, (Joseph Bova) returns to the West after being involved in a terrible car crash and spending six months as a prisoner in communist East Germany. Hideously burned and with his body crushed, he is forced to wear an un-removable steel mask to stay alive. Sean Rogers (Elliott Gould), the FBI agent sent to debrief Dr. Martino, discovers that he was interrogated while held captive by Eastern spymaster Colonel Azarin (Trevor Howard) - and that his unexpected release may all be part of a lethal plot.
Is the man behind the steel mask really Lucas Martino at all, or a ticking time bomb waiting for an opportunity to betray the West? Is he just a tormented victim - or the ultimate double agent?
