Remake of Agatha Christie's whodunit classic, in which ten suspects find themselves incommunicado 300 kilometers from the nearest town in a luxurious hotel in the middle of a desert in Iran. The invitees accept this, and thereupon make only the feeblest of efforts to seek a way of escaping. Dressed in tuxedos and evening gowns, they resign themselves to being eliminated one by one.

The murders are all committed in the most discreet, unspectacular ways, and cause only the mildest of trepidations among the remaining ‘Indians’.

Thesping consists of the usual cameos typical of the co-pro genre. Charles Aznavour manages to get in a song before nonchalantly drinking his poison and the others dutifully plod through their parts.
