Peter Weller stars as Steve Parker, a skilled U.S. agent sent to diffuse a bomb in the Bucharest embassy left over from the Cold War. Daryl Hannah, playing Parker's assistant and ex-girlfriend, has also been dispatched to Romania. What may have been a romantic reunion turns deadly when a terrorist group storms the embassy, taking 37 hostages including Parker's stepson. The arrival of General Buck Swain (Tom Berenger) just complicates the dire situation. Dry humor and a dash of romance add color to this action thriller.
