Bob McIlhenney, a leading American scientist with a drinking problem and a passion for vodka, attends a high-energy physics conference in Bulgaria. When he canít find vodka his withdrawal symptoms compel him to ask the Soviet consulate for the liquor. He gets the vodka, but also a beautiful, flame-haired girl, Karen, to listen to his pillow-talk and suborn him. But the Russians didnít envisage their falling in love with each other; or that McIlhenney, the scientist, is brilliant enough to play the game of the foxes with the security men on both sides and dupe everyone into letting them go their own way, free.
