Presents a simulated on-the-spot television report of a Congressional hearing where a Russian deputy-premier who has requested political asylum in the United States is answering questions concerning his change of loyalties. To everyone's surprise, the reason for his defection is not disappointment with a totalitarian regime, but a protest against the regime's philosophy of peaceful coexistence. In a heated discussion among the Russian, Congressmen, and the Congressional committee attorney, many of the differences between the processes of a democratic government and a totalitarian government are illuminated.
