Double Identity

Synopsis

Dr. Nick Pinter (Kilmer) is a member of Doctors Beyond Borders in Eastern Europe, and is mistaken for someone named John Charter, who is a secret agent for the British Government.

Along the way of trying to keep from getting killed, Nick picks up Katrine (Miko), who works for the British Secret Service, and she tries to help him escape with his life (and her own).
