They are gaining on him and in one last, desperate escape attempt, the hero leaps into the air and in a brutal explosion of glass from the car windshield he lands upon, dies. Enter Alain Moreau, a French cop who discovers that the recently deceased is his exact double. Rifling through his passport, Moreau learns that the dead man was Mikhail Suverov, a visitor from New York. Disturbed by the resemblance, Moreau talks to his mother who tearfully tells him that he was indeed a twin, and because of intense poverty, she had to give his brother Mikhail up. This gives Moreau a double mission -- to solve his brother's murder and to learn more about him by trying to impersonate him. His quest for truth takes Moreau to the Little Odessa section of New York where he meets Mikhail's girlfriend and learns that he was mixed-up with both the Russian Mafia and a crooked arm of the FBI. This, of course, puts him into grave danger, and gives Moreau plenty of opportunities to use his excellent martial arts and other he-man skills to bring the villains to justice.
