Watch White Nights

Nikolai Rochenko, a ballet dancer hailing from the chilly lands of Russia, has defected to the West to escape the tyrannical Russian government. But when his plane malfunctions as he flies over his homeland, the plane is forced to land and Nikolai is confronted by Russian officials. Colonel Chaiko recognizes the famous face of the dancer and takes Nikolai into custody. He is whisked off to his old apartment where an American named Raymond Greenwood is hired by Colonel Chaiko to keep watch over Nikolai and prevent him from escaping again. Colonel Chaiko wants Nikolai to perform on the ballet season's opening night and remain in the Soviet Union. To sway the reluctant dancer, Chaiko brings Nikolai's former lover and fellow ballet dancer, Galina Ivonova, on board to keep him from trying to run.

Galina has hard feelings towards Nikolai, bitter that he deserted the country she remains devoted to and heartbroken that he left her. As they work together under a sometimes tense relationship with Raymond, they soon join forces with the American to escape the Soviet Union when Raymond's wife becomes pregnant. Nikolai chooses to stay behind to distract the hardhearted Colonel Chaiko as Raymond and his wife flee to the American Consulate.
