This highly exciting, gripping tale of political intrigue centers around the sojourn of a doctor, Fairbanks, who is invited to the mythical country of Vosnia under false pretenses. Once there, he finds that he is required to perform a complicated operation on the tyrannical head of

state, who has but a short time left in this world. When Fairbanks becomes aware of the political climate in Vosnia, he realizes that escape is his only chance to live in freedom, so he attempts a getaway accompanied by Johns, the part-British lass he encounters along the way. Also joining in the

escape is two-bit gangster Lom, but even his skills are not enough to see the threesome to safety. Captured, Fairbanks is allowed to go free only after an abrupt change in government takes place. A mythical language was created to enhance the depiction of Vosnia, whose exact location is only

hinted at, but seems to be located somewhere in Communist Eastern Europe.
