Roman Hawk, a tall, rugged agent for the CIA, and Rina Kol, the gorgeous but deadly chief operative for Israel's Mossad, have been given the mission of saving a nation from nuclear disaster.

While on a mission in Moscow to retrieve stolen records of the Army's new sophisticated rifle, Roman overhears a conversation between the Chairman, head of the Russian mafia, and militsiya General Levshinsky discussing plans to produce and detonate a 210-kiloton nuclear bomb somewhere in Israel. After receiving word of what Roman has recently overheard, General Levshinski assembles an all-out manhunt for his capture.

Can Roman escape the clutches of the Russian mob while helping Mossad Director Aaron Levy prevent a nuclear attack on Yom Kippur? With Rina Kol by his side, Roman tracks the shipment of the bomb as it makes its way to Tel Aviv in attempt to thwart the attack-Armageddon.

With time working against them, will they find it in time?
