Stop us if you've heard this one before. A nuclear war has wiped out most of mankind. Still, the remnants of the United States and the Soviet Union haggle over who has "won". To settle matters, a single American (Ted Prior) and a single Russian (Robert D'Zar) are ordered to duke it out on behalf of their respecitvely countries-winner take all. We know that Final Sanction is an American-International project because William Smith is in it. The early-1990s collapse of Soviet Communism quickly converted Final Sanction into a period piece.
