The past is a place you cannot escape.
Joy Division tells the story of Thomas, an ex-member of the Hitler Youth and ex-Soviet spy, living life anonymously in Central America and haunted by memories of his troubled past - his lost love, his instinct for survival and his relentless quest for individual freedom.
Recalling in flashbacks the horrors of war and the murky existence of a spy, Thomas is taken on a journey from the Armageddon of the last days of the Third Reich to the Cold War of ideology in Moscow and London, as his conscience forces him to face his ghosts.
