Set within the UN during the Cold War, amidst intrigue and espionage of the late ’70s and early ‘80s, this is the controversial story of Theo van Boven, his team and the survivors accused of terrorism who fought against the system and the military dictatorships of Chile and Argentina and across South America. Confronting the Secretary General and the US government, van Boven pays the price of his career yet creates changes in the system that last through to today. And the subversives that were tortured turn out to be the democrats.
