FULL SYNOPSIS

After years of an oppressive dictatorship, a group of army officers in a tiny, vaguely delineated European country organize a coup. Colonel Narriman ([[Performer~P93993~David Hemmings~davidhemmings]]) has bravely taken chances which could have resulted in his death, and he expects, once the coup is successful, to become the next leader of his country. Quietly biding his time, Colonel Zeller ([[Performer~P53681~Peter O'Toole~peterotoole]]) has played along with the revolutionaries but doesn't like their methods. In the end, he puts a monkey-wrench into their whole operation. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
