Beirut in 1940 -- a carefree social whirl under the shadow of war, a city of torn allegiances, treason and love. After France's crushing defeat by the German army, the pro-German Vichy French control Lebanon and Syria, while Britain tightens her grip over Palestine and Iraq. Diplomats and politicians maneuver as spies and agents intrigue in the narrow and deadly streets.
