Set in the country of Scandinavia, a group of terrorists led by Shepherd (John Quentin) take the British ambassador hostage in his house, requesting that five political prisoners in England be released. Meanwhile, on the tarmac of Scandinavia's airport, another terrorist group led by Petrie (Ian McShane) has taken command of a plane and are trying to make contact with those who have kidnapped the ambassador to provide them a clear exit. However, Scandinavian officer Colonel Nils Tahlvik (Sean Connery) though originally wants no negotiations with the terrorists, finds his plan for action is overridden by the pressure coming from his government as well as the British government, and before long Tahlvik suspects that something doesn't add up.
