Opening narration: "Some men lose themselves in war. Others, find themselves."

It is 2056, six years after the Hing, a humanoid race, invaded earth. While America fights on, Russia has reached an uneasy truce with the aliens, leaving some regions under their control and other declared neutral.

In the neutral city of Archangel on the Barent Sea, cynical American expatriate Michael Ryan runs Heaven, a small coffee bar and music club, where shady Russians mingle with Hing soldiers and other dubious characters. Everything is agreeably corrupt until Alexandra Nevsky informs Michael that Hing commander Sulat Ray is on the lookout for two NATO soldiers who might be interested in buying a Hing scout vehicle has gone missing. Those soldiers, Winston Meyerburg and Cass Trenton have dodged Hing patrols and found their way Michael's bar.

Closing narration: "True sacrifice is not what we surrender, but what we ultimately gain."
