You play the role of Matt Carter, a freelance journalist. You are in the Soviet Union, chasing a story that will win you the Pulitzer prize... or so you think. You soon find yourself in Lubyanka, KGB’s political prison, stripped of all possessions and beaten to unconsciousness. You will soon be killed or sent to a Siberian prison.
Time is extremely important. Using some impoverished gadgets, a few recovered weapons and together with the help of a loyalist named Grushkov who has also been framed, you must try to escape. You must evade or overcome elite Soviet forces, defeat the conspiracy and prove that you are innocent, before all is lost.
