This hugely successful series that originally appeared in the UK on More4, tells the story of Martin Rauch, a young recruit forced into the Stasi by his aunt. His mission is to work in the heart of the West German military in Bonn, feeding top secret information back to East Germany concerning a suspected imminent nuclear attack by the West during the Cold War.
The film depicts his rapid transformation into a skilled spy, and the often gruesome lengths that he reluctantly has to go to in order to achieve the objectives of his superiors.
In German with English subtitles.
