“The Mamba” (Michael Niavarani) is an international top terrorist, a deadly fighter, sniper, explosives expert and a master of trickery and deceipt. On the contrary, Hossein Sarivi (also Michael Niavarani) is an obedient husband, who works as a sound designer in a cookie factory. Both look almost the same, but have never met each other.
When Sarivi gets sacked without notice and is looking for a new job, he gets confused with his look-alike and is sent on a deadly mission to Casablanca. Without the slightest notion he gets into the firing line of neurotic CIA-agent Bronski (Christoph Maria Herbst) and becomes Enemy No. 1 of the real Mamba.
To top it all off Sarivi has to team-up with beautiful terrorist newcomer Sherazade (Melika Foroutan), who takes him for the cold-blooded killer she has always admired. While they both have to prepare an assault on a nuclear power plant in France Sarivi discovers unknown feelings for his fiercely fighting partner…
