In the tense political background born of the aftermath of the Second World War, two young people meet in a chance encounter and begin a lifelong love affair. However, the two must face the perils of being reluctant pawns in the arena of Cold War espionage, caught between the machinations of the US and the newly formed Russian Federation. Helping to maintain the fragile peace between these two great nations threatens to divide the two lovers, casting a shadow over their idyllic romance.
Anneliese, a beautiful dancer, famous in the world of international ballet, finds herself a go-between for both the CIA and the KGB, as does Gabriel, an astute nuclear scientist working in the US. Irrevocably drawn together, they must find a way to extricate themselves from the complex web of politics and secrecy that surrounds them. Their story is one of profound struggle but also of eternal hope and the purest love.
