When Gertrude is forced to flee Nazi Germany to Istanbul with her family, Rudolf is left behind. Despite the distance, he remains devoted to her. But then, her letters stop.

Eight years pass before Rudolf is able to follow Gertrude to Istanbul. Their reunion should be inevitable, but Rudolf can’t find her. He stumbles upon Rosalyn who immediately agrees to help him search for his lost love.

Willing to do anything in their search, they find themselves entangled with a British intelligence officer. As the danger increases and the search for Gertrude stretches on, Rudolf and Rosalyn grow close, but Rudolf gave his heart away long ago.
