The two eventually fall in love and, with their marriage as a perfect cover, the colonel is ordered to flee to Russia with his bride - this time with him posing as a defector. When the political charade is discovered, however, the courageous couple embarks in a dangerous flight to freedom in a heart-pounding escape with enemy agents in hot pursuit.
