Moe Berg was the baseball player who was recruited by the predecessor to today's CIA during the 1940s. His celebrity as an athlete in combination with great language skills opened many doors, and when the US was informed that German physicist Werner Heisenberg was working on a nuclear weapon bomb, Berg was sent to investigate how far he had come and, if he was close, kill him. The film is based on the biographical book by the same name by Nicolas Dawidoff.
