While planning the maneuvers of the Warsaw Pact forces, Kuklinski has access to top secrets. He gets to know that the American nuclear counterattack against Soviet forces is planned to be executed on Polish territory. Thanks to his determination, he starts a long, lonely and psychologically exhausting cooperation with CIA. From that moment the lives of him and his family are in constant danger as one careless move may lead to tragedy.
