Story

Geheim agent 009 sterft in het huis van de Britse ambassadeur in Oost-Berlijn. In zijn handen heeft hij een gouden Faberge ei dat ooit voor de Russische Tsaar werd gemaakt. Het ei blijkt een perfecte vervalsing te zijn. 007 krijgt de opdracht om de zaak verder te onderzoeken. Hij ontdekt dat de Russische Generaal Orlov de schatten uit het Kremlin heeft laten vervalsen. Het blijkt een dekmantel te zijn om een atoombom in het Westen te laten exploderen. Maud Adams schittert hier voor de tweede keer als Bondgirl in een James Bond film.
