Story

Mooie vrouwen en een dodelijk ultimatum. Via een geniaal en duivels plan weet de niets ontziende misdadiger Emilio Largo in het bezit te komen van een Nato vliegtuig met aan boord twee atoombommen. Zijn ultimatum is menens: 100 miljoen aan ruwe diamanten of de vernietiging van twee wereldsteden. James Bond wordt naar de Bahamas gestuurd om de zaak op te lossen. Onderweg komt hij in contact met de mooie Domino, en de duivelse Fiona.
