[Scenery] Stage darkens. Spotlight on solitary table with two men standing on either side. One man standing back from the light, other man is James Cooper standing with hands on the table.


(Mysterious Man) - We have a new assignment for you Coop


(James) - I hope its not another South Africa. The sun down there is unbearable.


(Mysterious Man) - Not this time. This time its different, an easy in and out. Its all here in the file.


(Internal Monologue: James) - I remember that day, when the Director called me into the briefing room and told me about the assignment. It had been June 9th, 1961, a few days before the erection of the Berlin Wall. I was supposed to sneak into East Berlin, find some doctor scientist or whatnot, and get him and his family out of there. He made an agreement with the CIA ; his freedom from Soviet Oppression, in exchange for his assistance in making bombs. I don't know why, but every time I stepped into that dark room, I felt nervous. Kinda like when
