Zurich, 1956: During the Cold War a compromising photograph exposes a Swiss star reporter as a Soviet spy. Unable to withstand the pressure, he commits suicide in the interrogation room. Special agent Rappold from the counter-espionage department is plagued by doubt: Were the photographs really genuine? And why did the influential PR advisor, Dr. Harry Wind, even have the photographs made? In a merciless cat and mouse game with Dr. Wind as a manipulative storyteller, Rappold realizes that he himself is part of a conspiracy. Written by Anonymous
