He is quickly forced to face a number of life challenges; drifting away from close teenage friends, hurtling towards adulthood, coming to terms with his sexuality and seeing his family disintegrate. In a short space of time he exchanges mountain hikes and carefree living for a life of secrecy as an informant and agent in the Nazis war machine. Alexander participates in the War not out of free will. It is pressure from family and friends that leads him to volunteer to join the Storm Troopers, the division that starts out as a security outfit to protect Hitler. Instead of being dragged along by this mobs unruly behaviour, sexual exploits and hatred for the Jews, Alexander rather wants to get on with his life. He wants the war to be avoided and wants his family back together in the setting that he loved as a carefree teenager. A transfer to the SD (Sicherheitsdienst) is a welcome escape from the Storm Troopers, although he suspects it was arranged by his good friend, Claus. Despite the war and their different circumstances Alexander maintains contact with Claus, who pursues a successful military career but then develops his own agenda with the war and its outcome. Their paths would cross a number of times, controlled by a strange destiny. Although each of these accidental encounters with Claus highlights how different their war aspirations are, they ultimately desire the same for their country, the end of the war. The war and the roles his family members play in it become a major source of conflict. Alexanders father and brother become members of the Nazi regime early on, but with a passion that eludes Alexander completely.
