A film directed by Jean-Paul Savignac

Genre: Action / Thriller


When a consignment of miniature nuclear warheads is stolen in the United States, the famous American agent Nick Carter is sent to Antwerp to begin his most important assignment yet. Carter has just four days to find the missing rockets before they are detonated, releasing a lethal gas over the whole of Europe. Not long after meeting up with Janos, his local contact who is working undercover as a circus manager, Carter is repeatedly attacked by unknown assailants. His main suspect is the engineer Beckmann, but his interest is soon diverted to his ex-wife Dora, whose relations with a certain Hebert may not be exclusively amorous...
