MacNamara, the executive in charge of Coca-Cola for Germany, is told to "look after" Scarlett, the rambunctious and airheaded daughter of the company's CEO. All seems well until it is found that she has been crossing into East Germany and is now married to young apparatchik Otto. MacNamara frames Otto as a western spy, but Scarlett's now-revealed pregnancy means Otto must be retrieved and made to seem less... Communist. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Cinematography.
