Adolf Verloc is working as a spy in London, when he's recruited to commit a terrorist act that could endanger the lives of countless citizens. It's a professional decision that has an unexpected impact on his personal life.

Adolf Verloc lives in London and runs a shop where he sells underground books and materials. He's considered a member of a local anarchist group but is also a spy for a foreign government.
