Russia is on the brink of anarchy, and its current president stands powerless against the growing famine and inflation, the escalating crime and corruption, and the teeming hordes of unemployed rebels roaming the streets. Radical right-wing party leader Igor Komarov (Patrick Bergin, Patriot Games) welcomes the chaos. He looks forward to the new election, having gained the respect of the restless masses by promising law, order, prosperity, and to restore the lost greatness of their homeland. Who is this icon of peace who assures a Russia reborn? One man who knows is Jason Monk (Golden Globe nominee Patrick Swayze, Ghost), ex-CIA and “the best damn agent-runner” in the business. He’s seen Komorov’s confidential “Black Manifesto,” which calls for a return to dictatorship, military expansionism, and genocidal ethnic cleansing.
