The fourth in the series of films revolving around the character of Jack Ryan, the CIA analyst, as in Tom Clancy's novels, The Sum of All Fears sees a younger Ryan (played by Ben Affleck as opposed to Harrison Ford) trying to stop nuclear Armageddon.

In the Yom Kippur war a nuclear bomb falls into the Syrian desert and is swallowed up by the sands until two scrap dealers find it and sell it for 400$. The buyer in turn sells it to an Austrian neo-Nazi named Richard Dressler (Alan Bates) for $50 million.

Ryan (Affleck) is the authority on new president of the Russian Federation Alexander Nemerov (Ciarán Hinds). He now only has to convince both CIA Director (Morgan Freeman) and the US President (James Cromwell) that it is someone other than the Russian president who is to blame for the nuclear bomb that went off in Baltimore. And that by striking at each other Dressler would have won.
