He claims his father's sizable but illicit fortune which causes both German and United States intelligence agencies to begin looking into this curious, enigmatic man. Much speculation is raised on both sides as to the man's intentions, is he a harbinger of destruction, a fatally obsessed martyr and religious fanatic or simply a wronged man tortured by his past and seeking justice for the horrible crimes committed upon him?
