Berlin. The main character of the film Howard Silk is an employee in a state organization with more than 30 years of work experience.

The guard leads Silka to the top authorities Peter Quayle for a secret conversation. It is from the moment of this meeting that the life of an employee completely changes.
During the conversation, Quail reveals the main secret of their agency: for half a century now they have guarded the passage to the parallel world. It is the same as ours, but it develops in a different way. The world was one, but during the Cold War, after the completion of an experiment, it split into two. The conversation did not fit into the head of the main character, and the appearance in the secret room of his double was the last straw. Who is he, this double? Second Howard Silk? But why is not he like this and the other? He looks more like a steep special agent … For what purpose did he come and how are the parallel dimensions and people’s lives connected in them? All this is to be understood Silko and prevent an imminent terrible disaster.
