The film begins with super spy Com 50, who is at CIA headquarters managing paperwork when his commander comes in to brief him on his next mission. Apparently, a band of terrorists (whom we find out in another Com 50 movie is christened with the name Cal Pada) are plotting to destroy the Sears Tower in Chicago. According to the commander, they are stationed in their base in northern Iran. Com 50 packs up and heads out.
At the base, Com 50 scales the fence and gets inside, knocking out the guard in the way. He then explores the base, killing terrorists where ever they may be. However, he is eventually caught out in the open. The terrorists fire upon Com 50, but his bullet-proof vest protects him. He dives, plants a bomb, and escapes just as the base explodes.
Back at CIA headquarters, Com 50 stumbles back into his office, where the commander congratulates him for a job well done.
The film was made one afternoon in January 2004 with no script, no storyboards, and only two actors with minimal costumes. The film, essentially, was made more for fun than any practical implications. However, the film was filmed on an analog camcorder, which reduced the quality and limited the output options. Worse, the camcorder broke February 2004, which meant that a replacement had to be secured (this was done two months later).
On July 29, 2009, for the fifth anniversary of Mustache Maniacs Film Co., a fifth anniversary collection was released, which included a completed version of this film. Unlike Com 50: Peril in Iran and Com 50 and 007, this film was edited to match the style of Com 50-3: Raid on Central Island. The film was released yet again online on February 11, 2012 as a "From the Vaults" re-release.
While the film was mildly received when it was first released, it was almost ignored in its re-release. Despite this, other Com 50 movies have been re-released online.
- Continuity Error: When Com 50 is first discovered, the lighting is harsh and very dark. But when he plants the grenade, the lighting is very bright, with natural light illuminating the scene.
- Visual Error: When Com 50 is fleeing from the base, Lawrence Gato the cat runs by, looking scared.

- This is the first time the original character of Com 50 was depicted on film, even though this film was the last Com 50 film to be released.
- As part of a fifth anniversary collection released in 2009, this film was finally edited together and released along with Indiana and the Forbidden Mayan Temple and Indiana Jones and the Egyptian Tomb.
