John Honeyman is a former arms negotiator who represented the U.S. in the early 1980's and held secret meetings with his Russian counterpart to defuse the explosive tensions that divided the two nuclear super-powers. The fate of the entire world hung in the balance as the men sought to build a bridge based on mutual trust over the turbulent waters of suspicion and paranoia that separated the two nations.
