1997: A woman is called to CIA headquarters to identify someone from 25 years earlier when she lived in Germany. When what she is told doesn’t add up, she fears she may become a fall guy for the CIA and sets off on her own to discover what is really going on. Her quest takes her to Europe and back again to the U.S., and pairs her with a mysterious man who may have been responsible for her husband’s death.
