It is around 1937. Alex Kovacs has just learned that his favorite uncle and a force in the company the family ran has died. As he starts to grieve he is asked by his home country's intelligence bureau to work for them during his routine business trips in Germany. He is willing to do so because as most in Austria where he lives, the looming Nazi threat is frightening. However, when he tries to learn more about his uncles's death, he has to deal with a very untrusting Gestapo captain.
