It's 1940, a world at war. President Roosevelt ordered America be neutral, though unofficially he knew the U.S. needed to prepare for war, especially for intelligence. He orders adviser Harry Hopkins, Treasury official Myles Finucane, unofficial FDR "fixer" and Wall St. lawyer Bill Donovan to survey the nation's needs. They meet with British and German intelligence heads with dangerous results.
