August 1945: A Victory Train bound from Chicago rumbles through the Sierra Nevada stuffed with soldiers celebrating the end of WWII. One is Daniel Rose, scion of a legendary movie studio. Moral turpitude has ended Daniel's service to his country.

In L.A. Daniel meets Cutter, a man fleeing from military service guarding a uranium mine. Their dream is to put the military behind them.

A year later they purchase a "coffee-pot" radio station. It is an instant success. They buy a retreat they call Mystic Mountain. But their success brings trouble, and they soon discover a mysterious financial arrangement funded with money smuggled out of Europe in 1939 is threatening to ruin everything they've achieved.

The two learn that the fund is a scheme to make the world safe for atomic weaponry, and that their Place of Promise has been bought by the same currency of murder, duplicity, innocence, generosity and greed that made post-war America so prosperous.
