Plot – Back from a mission in the Antilles, James Bond is dispatched to investigate a case of jewelry smuggling from Russia which has already claimed the life of 009, the agent in charge of the mission. An Indian prince, a Russian general and a fascinating and mysterious woman - Octopussy - are involved in the smuggling. Taking advantage of “Octopussy Circus”, owned by the woman who uses it as a cover for her trade, the Russian general and the Indian want to introduce a nuclear device into Germany. The explosion of the device would bring positive political consequences for the Soviet aims. In the end, Bond with the aid of Octopussy - who is only a tool in the hands of the criminals - manages to foil the plan.
