Two inquisitive teens pursue imaginary Communist conspiracies, during the Cold War years. Their creative games become real-world dangers as they stumble into a deadly race between dangerous foes, triggering mystifying actions. Communist Party espionage, CIA pursuit and hundreds of millions of dollars all become frighteningly real. One boy’s family disappears into hiding, while his best friend finds himself caught between competitive Communist adversaries and a special CIA operation. Each group believes that the young man has key information for locating the lost fortune, though he can’t understand why they are all focused on him. He learns that his friend’s family has been involved in Communist activities and has passed information to him in an unknown form. The Communist organizations keep him under constant surveillance and apply strategies that plunge him into his first romantic entanglements.
Based on a series of real events, the story incorporates nostalgic memories of the world of young people, as it was during those years. The day-to-day activities of the characters, their hangouts, teen romances, and aspirations are sweet memories of the American past.
