Karin Duftblatt walks the streets of Berlin on a secret mission. She is weary and tired, much like the city she inhabits-a city that still carries the ravages of the war two decades earlier. Even so, her new name and identity can't conceal the blonde hair and blue eyes of the beautiful young girl she once was.
She is pursued by Gustav, an evil man, who was once in love with her. Her father remains a captive in a dark cell, with little hope for freedom. And she herself feels imprisoned-her life a secret in a city of secrets.
Suddenly she sees a face. He looks familiar but it couldn't possibly be him! As the man walks out of the American consulate, he steps back into her life, changing it forever. . . .
