It is the late 1930's and Ernst Schaeffer is a young, brilliant German zoologist and ornithologist with a successful Ametican-led expedition to Tibet behind him.
Schaeffer is offered the opportunity to lead his own team on an even more extensive Tibet expedition which will allow Schaeffer to pursue all of his ambitions.
But Schaeffer is, by now, an SS officer, under the direct command of Heinrich Himmler who want to use the trip to gather evidence to support his theories of Aryan superiority.
At each stage of his imperceptibly slow slide from pure scientist to SS functionary, Schaeffer, like Faust, must make compromises, make deals with his own personal devil.
