1618, in the heart of Europe. Jakob is a 14-year-old-orphan who, according to a prophecy, is to reunite Catholics and Protestants in one faith. Resistantly, he commits to the role of the savior and loses the search of his true origins out of sight.

Historical as well as fictional characters cross Jakob´s way:  emperor and queens, a doubtful priest, a woman accused of witchcraft, as well as an elderly nobleman; they all need and use Jakob to advance their religious and earthly aspirations, all struggling for their own battles in the search for truth. When hell breaks loose and the 30-year-war hits the European continent, Jakob is in the center of the deadly conflicts.
