Dimitri K., an American, was asked by the head of the East German Secret Police to answer two questions about his country: when and where will you start the next World War? His belief in his duty to preserve world peace led him to accept; living in Washington, D.C. as an underground agent until the fall of the Berlin Wall. Since then, he has remained in near isolation. This film examines his extraordinary life and the search for his place in society, which he struggled to change.
