At the height of the Cold War, two Americans are runnng a bar in the West German capital, called Mac's place.

But McCorkle is ready to answer a call for help from Padillo, and he joins his friend in a blind journey with no inkling of what they will encounter at the turn of each dark and dangerous corner.
