1517; Martin Luther nails his 95 theses, demanding reform of the Catholic Church, to the door of the cathedral church in Wittenberg, setting off the period of upheaval, war, civil war and violence we now know as the Reformation.
In this age devastated by the wars of religion, a young theology student adopts the cause of the heretics and the disinherited. A game ensues between the radical Protestant Anabaptist and his enemy Q, in which the true size of the stakes remain hidden to the end. What begins as a struggle to reveal each other’s identities eventually becomes part of a much greater mission: to destroy and achieve domination over each other.
