In this first ever feature-length documentary about the enigmatic Morris "Moe" Berg, award-winning filmmaker Aviva Kempner again focuses her camera on a little-known Jewish hero.

From the streets of Newark to five major league teams during baseball's Golden Age to his secret life spying for the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) during WWII, Berg's improbable story is told with rare historical footage and revealing interviews with family and an All-Star roster from the worlds of history, sports and spycraft.
