An ""actual"" drama about five Romanian patriots, who in February 1955 seized the Communist Romanian Legation in Berne, Switzerland, in protest against the plight of their people in Romania. The daring plot is conceived by Oliviu Beldeanu of the Romanian Liberation Movement and executed with Soare Codrescu, Ion Chirila, Dumitru Ochiu and Dorel Ciochina. They release a secret Communist code to the press resulting in one of the heaviest blows to the Russian spy network. The small band holds the Legation for 48 hours until the Swiss government assures them that they will be tried there and not extradited to Romania. They await trial in Berne.
