Edward Wilson believed in America, and he would sacrifice everything he loved to protect it.

Edward Wilson, the only witness to his father's suicide and member of the Skull and Bones Society while a student at Yale, is a morally upright young man who values honor and discretion, qualities that help him to be recruited for a career in the newly founded OSS. His dedication to his work does not come without a price though, leading him to sacrifice his ideals and eventually his family.

Edward Wilson, ein strebsamer Yale-Student, tritt 1939 der geheimen Bruderschaft „Skull and Bones“ bei, aus der reihenweise künftige Führungskräfte der Politik hervorgehen. So auch er.

Ce sont ces qualités qui poussent la CIA, l'agence gouvernementale qui vient d'être créée, à le recruter. Influencé par l'ambiance paranoïaque que provoque la guerre froide dans toute l'agence, Wilson se montre de plus en plus suspicieux. Son pouvoir grandit, mais il a de moins en moins confiance en ceux qui l'entourent. Son obsession du travail va lui coûter cher, l'isolant chaque jour un peu plus de ses proches et de celui qu'il était…
