Johannes is approached by the German secret service to report on his Persian colleague Farid. When Farid starts an affair with Beate, a waitress, with whom Johannes has also fallen in love, and job-related conflicts appear betweeen the two men, fundamental values like friendship, love and trust are suddenly at stake. Three characters in a dangerous menage a trois, set in a triangle of science, politics and love.
