Produced for Norwegian and English language audiences, Orion's Belt offers a biting critique of Cold War politics and continued Soviet influence in Norway. After a storm, three seamen from Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago, stumble upon a secret Soviet station intercepting radio signals. Only one survives, but Norwegian and American military and intelligence communities cooperate with the Soviets to silence him.
