Based on true events - on a verge of Gulf War American intelligence officers are trapped inside Iraq and hunted by secret police. Polish agents in the area prepare daring escape operation.

In 1990, after Iraqi forces invaded Kuwait, American intelligence safehouse in Baghdad is raided by the secret police. CIA agents inside managed to escape, but now they are trapped in a hostile country that might be soon the in war with United States and a single Mossad agent, Karen Pierce, is their hope for rescue. US ambassador in Warsaw seeks help from Polish intelligence agencies, which have their agents in Iraq protecting Polish engineers on the major building sites. Meanwhile former Polish agent Jozef Mayer learns from his doctor that his physical condition is getting worse and he has only perhaps months to live. Soon after Mayer receives informations that his son, one of the Polish engineers working in Iraq, was just arrested by secret police. Despite his former colleagues advise not to get involved he sets out to Iraq to save his son and soon his personal mission gets tangled with the US agents evacuation carried out by Polish agents.

Polish war movie based on true events that took place just before Gulf War, although the script has added a lot of material to original events. Wladyslaw Pasikowski, who also made Demons of War and Jack Strong, back in 1999 was still in his "tough guys" period (including Demons of War) that had very little to do with realism and Operation Simoom is unfortunately not an exception - the whole Jozef Mayer part of the story is just full of cliches and adds very little to the original events. At the same time the original operation is pushed aside and mixing them together did not helped either of the stories. The movie had potential, but Pasikowski lacked the experience to make use of the story, like he did with Jack Strong 15 years later.
