    • Synopsis
    • At the end of 1945, a wave of exposing Soviet spies ran through Canada. The list of names of secret agents grew day by day…
      Around that time, a man arrives at one of the divisions of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He insists that he is Stalin’s personal pilot who defected from the USSR, first from fascist captivity and then from the Soviet military counterintelligence service “SMERSH”. Along with his girlfriend Katrin and a wounded POW - the Canadian Indian Tayayake - he allegedly hijacked a bomber and crossed the Bering Strait to Canadian territory where their plane crashed into a lake and disappeared without a trace with the corpse of the Indian inside.
      Using British counterintelligence, the Mounties find out that the famous pilot - Jaan Puumets – in fact did have his airplane shot down in combat somewhere in Russia. The pilot is alive and recovering from the injury in a Moscow hospital. He even receives Gold Star for his heroics...
      When the Canadians are finally convinced that Moscow concealed the famous pilot’s escape by creating his double and that Jaan actually is the man he claims to be, the British intelligence service is ready to start cooperating with him. However, after so much effort trying to prove his identity to various “services”, Jaan rethinks his life and decides that he should forgo not only his motherland and his girlfriend, but his own name as well. He decides to take his friend’s name – Tayayake - and become the leader of an Indian tribe.
