At the war's end, Eastern Germany is occupied by a Russian satellite government, and the Baron remains a virtual prisoner on his East German estate. He manages to send his daughter a package, but East German agents, believing it contains information harmful to the communist regime, attempt to forcibly recover the information from her.
By chance, a young Pittsburgh lawyer saves her from Stasi agents when he finds them trying to torture her in the woods near his home. He becomes her lawyer and friend.
