An uninterrupted hunt starts, when Nikola, once the Kremlin's darling, becomes a political refugee. He is not allowed to reveal the secret around the gold of the USSR. Sheikh Abdul-Aziz, brother-in-law of Saudi Arabia's King Faisal, wants to rescue him. But suddenly he turns silent ...

In spite of that, the drama takes its course.



Revelations of dramatic international events which took place forty years ago, when the authoress lived in the Middle East. What was the King of Saudi Arabia aiming at?
