An extraordinary thriller about a man determined to change the course of the World War II.

A disillusioned Iron Cross-winning veteran injured on the Eastern front, Norwegian Henry Storm is the unlikeliest of heroes. Discovering the secret of a German “wonder weapon” he decides to return to Germany to uncover the mystery and redeem himself.

Werner Sorge is an officer in the German security service whose investigations cross paths with the secret rocket program and Storm. To find the Norwegian spy he employs his own secret weapon: A beautiful and troubled Polish woman recruited as a German agent. Can Storm get his game-changing intel out of the Reich? Will Sorge bait him into the Wolfsangel trap?

An epic hunt is on, and the outcome of the second world war is at stake.
