​​​​​​​In the 1950’s, the hottest spot of the Cold War is not Washington, DC or Moscow, but Helsinki, where the KGB and the CIA vie for control of Finland, a small Nordic country wedged between East and West powers. As tensions rise between the global powerhouses, The Fist, a secret service Finnish task force, struggles to keep their homeland independent and their team united. As the group’s newest member begins to discover the truth of her past and the Finnish presidential election rapidly approaches, the personal and professional stakes grow ever higher. The Fist soon finds itself the guardians of Finland’s future.
