Description by OLDIES.com:

The Cold War heats up with action and suspense in this powerful adaptation of the best-seller by master espionage writer John Le Carre.

In exchange for political asylum, Polish defector Leiser (Christopher Jones) agrees to return behind the Iron Curtain to confirm the suspicions of the British Security Chief that East Germany is building a rocket in violation of the disarmament pact. Once in East Berlin, Leiser falls in love with a beautiful young girl and the couple decides to flee the espionage experts -- both East and West -- to start a new life together. But they soon find themselves pawns in a brutal game where the stakes are human lives. Newly remastered.
