Aleksey Teodorovic Vlassov (Yul Brynner) is a high ranking KGB official who defects while in France. He has with him highly-classified information as part of a deal with Western intelligence for his arrival in the United States. The debriefing is held at Langley by DCI Allan Davies (Henry Fonda) and MI6 representative Philip Boyle (Dirk Bogarde). Vlassov hands off a list of enemy agents in Western Europe including a deep penetration into NATO. Davies wants to begin operations to arrest the agents; however, those on the list suddenly begin to die off. The CIA also has suspicions over the authenticity of Vlassov's claims. The CIA discovers that a defection photo of Vlassov was taken in the Soviet Union, not in Turkey, judging from the contours of Mt. Ararat in the background. Vlassov also fails a lie detector test after he angrily protests about sexual related questions asked by the CIA during the test.

Dans un endroit du sud marocain et du Sahara espagnol à l'approche des années 1960, Castagliano, patron aux méthodes douteuses et surnommé « la Betterave » à cause de son diabète, dirige d'une main de fer une entreprise de transport routier dont il exploite les employés. Il engage John Steiner, un routier « mexicain », soi-disant né à Saltillo, pour conduire sur 2 000 km vers le sud un véhicule articulé Berliet rouge flambant neuf, affrété d'un mystérieux chargement d'une valeur déclarée de 100 000 dollars, direction Moussorah. Pendant une conversation téléphonique entre Castagliano et son client, on apprend qu'il a engagé Steiner la veille pour qu'il en sache le moins possible sur ce camion.
