U.S. Army Sergeant Max Young is sent to East Berlin as a new addition to the Military Liaison Mission, MLM for short. Their job is to oversee the Soviet Unions dismantling of nuclear weapons in East Germany. Sergeant Young is assigned as a driver for Colonel Cahill, the MLMs top intelligence officer. When the radio traffic between Soviet high command and Wursen, a top secret Soviet missile base suddenly stops Colonel Cahill and Sergeant Young is ordered to conduct a reconnaissance mission round the Wursen base. After a cold night in the woods around the base the sun is slowly rising and whats unfolds is far more then Sergeant Young had ever anticipated on. The film was based on the true story of U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Arthur D. Nicholson Jr., that took place on 24th March 1985, while performing a mission at a Soviet training area in Ludwigslust, East Germany.
