Description It is 1969. The first left-wing government in post-war West German history has come to power, led by the charismatic Willy Brandt.
A young advisor, G√ľnter Guillaume, is brought in. Guillaume is a charmer in a cold, tense world. He climbs the rungs, eventually becoming Brandt's personal assistant and indispensable advisor.

But Guillaume is hiding a secret so explosive it has the power to destroy Brandt's government and create dangerous waves on both sides of the iron curtain.
