World War II, Portugal is considered neutral, but the city is rife with spies and intrigue. Adversaries and enemies comingled not just in the cover of dark alleyways, but under the lights at the gaming tables of the famed Casino. Everything is for sale, and everything can be bought. People use whatever they have as currency – art, gold, family jewels, arms, refugees, sex, information...their honor. The story is clear – get what you need, any way that you can.
