Overview

Thirty-five years after the end of World War II, Jacques Jouvert, a Nazi collaborator who sent thousands to their death in Vichy, France, is spotted in upstate New York, setting off an explosive chain of events and changing three people's lives forever.

Sam Reed-A highly successful movie magnate, Reed holds a powerful secret. During World War II, he was a member of the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the American CIA, and he may have aided Jouvert's escape from justice.

Pierre Coreau-A member of the French resistance movement, Jouvert used Coreau to nab the heroic Resistance leader, Jean Michel. Now that Coreau is a French statesman and supposed war hero, his secret could end his career.

Carolyn Reed-Sam Reed's beautiful and headstrong daughter, Carolyn embarks on a quest to search for her mother, Christiana Duprez, a former fighter in the French Resistance. Desperate to learn the truth, Carolyn joins forces with a young French journalist on the trail of Jean Michel's incredible story.

In the pursuit for Jouvert, the long buried past suddenly becomes resurrected in a maelstrom of deceit, danger, and corruption. Loyalties will be tested and lives will be threatened. But the battle for justice is just beginning.
