A Compelling Story of Espionage and Love
After WW2 a defeated Germany is divided, and East Berlin becomes the de facto capital of the German Democratic Republic. The Berlin Wall is built which becomes the most powerful and oppressive iconic symbol of the Cold War.
West Berlin Police retrieve the body of a woman who drowned in the Havel River.
Erna Klemp, an MI6 agent is assigned to take on the dead woman's East Berlin identity. As Angela Muller she is sent through an escape tunnel on a perilous operation to East Berlin.
Her Mission? To infiltrate the Secret Police Headquarters of the Stasi. The Stasi is the most repressive, hated and feared arm of the GDR Government and responsible for espionage, domestic and political surveillance.
Angela gains promotion to Oberleutnant Axel Hempf's administration where she must access Stasi secret intelligence, vital in assisting MI6 agents and the East Germans escape to the West.
Over time, and against better judgement, a dangerous attraction develops between Angela and Axel. It becomes so powerful and compelling they are unable to resist.
