Andrei Sakharov (Jason Robards) is an acclaimed nuclear physicist living in Moscow. Though he leads the development of Russia's hydrogen bomb, Andrei becomes politically disillusioned as tensions between the U.S.S.R. and the United States continue to rise. He willfully jeopardizes his career by speaking out against his government's oppression of the Russian people, and is eventually demoted. Unfazed, Andrei publishes essays critical of the Soviet government, and is exiled to a small city.
