Omega Option (Variant "Omega") is a Soviet 1975 B&W five part mini series directed by Antonis Vogiazos. In 1942 a Soviet intellegence officer Sr. Lt. of State Security (Major rank) Sergei Skorin (Oleg Dal), posing as a German Hauptmann Paul Krieger, wages a complicated duel with Abwehr officer von Schlosser (Igor Vasilyev). Skorin is uncovered and arrested, and von Schlosser uses him in Funkspiel (radio play) to provide disinformation to Soviet headquarters. But it turns out that Skorin's disclosure was intentional, and the disinformation, sent to Moscow, allows to understand the real German plans.
