For Lieutenant Reim of the Stasi, life in East Berlin is a satisfying blend of days behind a desk and nights in front of a bottle.
But when a senior officer has a messy affair, it falls to Reim to do the clearing up.
It should be a straightforward job. Lean on a few people to get them to shut up. Intimidate neighbours, bribe officials and appeal to the socialist conscience of Party members. But when Reim starts his interrogations, he realises his boss is hiding more than just a lover.
Lieutenant Reim begins to investigate his superior—and what he uncovers puts his own life at risk.
