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...
