After the discover the truth, how do you atone for believing the lie?

The question haunts a professor of linguistics, recruited by the SS to gather intel, who discovers the atrocities committed by the Nazis and finds himself assuming various roles to turn the tables on Hitler’s henchmen to regain his honor.

At first idealistic and dedicated in service to his country, August Wichmann is transformed by the sure knowledge of the brutalities of the Holocaust, yet his attempts to stop the evil are compromised by threats to his family and friends.

Set against a tangled web of Abwehr agents and double agents, broken trust and deception, and the earnest hopes and thwarted plans of the Resistance, August treads a treacherous path of conscience toward nothing less than the redemption of his soul.

Many of the characters are based on real people, including seasoned spymaster Admiral Wilhelm Canaris and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, both presenting a fixed star by which August navigates the shifting moral boundaries required to fight the Nazis from within.
