When the fact that Max was romantically involved with an enemy spy came to light, his superiors demanded his head. Bladia, though a skilled spy, realized she had been given a mission that was essentially a death sentence. Both abandoned by their homelands, Max and Bladia pledged to stand as one. Even when totally surrounded, they fought with feverish determination until they fell.
