It's 1983. The Cold War is hot. Russian SS20 Missiles in East Germany are already pointed West. American Pershing II Missiles will soon be placed in West Germany, pointing East. The threat of nuclear conflict looms.
Our hero, Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay), is 23. Born and raised in East Germany, he is sent undercover as Mortiz Stamm to West Germany to work for a top General in the Bundeswehr. Officially, his job is to gather intelligence on the placement of the Pershing II Missiles. A secondary gig develops: inflitrating youth culture through close relationships with the General's two children. But nothing and no one are as they seem.
A Sundance TV original series.
