The series starts in Stockholm in 1933 as the German scientist Werner Heisenberg is awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, and although considered unreliable by the Nazis, he is allowed into the secret Nazi nuclear energy project, "Uranverein". Heisenberg's work reveals that an atom bomb can only be made with heavy, or hydrogen-laden water, which can be produced in sufficient quantities by the Norsk Hydro factory in Norway. Norwegian professor Leif Tronstad escapes to England to enlist Allied help in thwarting the plan.
