Abstract:

The ice-enshrouded mountains of Afghanistan ring with gunfire as native rebels wage war against invading Russian troops. Into their midst two men and a woman venture, each with a private cause. Dr. Jean-Pierre Debout brings medical relief to guerrillas in need, while his pregnant wife, Jane, gives aid to their families. Enter Ellis Thaler, American agent of the CIA, who must track down their legendary leader, Masud, before the Russians destroy him. Among these three, treachery will arise - and shatter an illusion of shared loyalty. In the Valley of Five Lions, beautiful Jane stands trapped between two spies. One, she must abandon; alongside the other she must risk her life. With a babe in arms, two lovers attempt a harrowing escape across an impassable mountain peak, as KGB helicopters hover menacingly overhead.
