Stag Maguire, a burnt-out journalist hardly able to prop himself up in the wake of tragedy, agrees to help a friend move. In the process, they find a message—HELP ME—written on a piece of silk tacked behind a long-forgotten portrait.

The message from an address in Berlin is urgent, though it had to have been written pre-World War II. Curious, Stag and his friend begin to research the address and whomever might have written the message. They trace the address to an apartment, a sealed time capsule that has not been lived in since 1942. And one phone call to that apartment unleashes an evil long thought vanquished—powerful men ready to implement a nefarious plot.

Events begin to cascade without mercy, and Stag—a broken man from the Midwest—finds himself pitted against a vestige of the Third Reich, with potent forces to ensure the propagation of Heydrich’s infamous SD—the Nazi intelligence agency—in today’s world.

Will ordinary man Stag Maguire prevail in his lone stand against evil?
