What’s it about
The Man in the High Castle is a startling depiction of an alternate history as imagined by author Philip K. Dick in his best-selling novel; a world in which Nazi Germany and Japan were victorious in World War II. The year is 1962 and the Axis Powers occupy the United States, where fascism rules and the few surviving Jews hide under assumed names.
In a dystopian America dominated by Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, a young woman discovers a mysterious film that may hold the key to toppling the totalitarian regimes.
Juliana Crain makes a new acquaintance in the Neutral Zone – an Irish fixer named Wyatt – and soon finds herself on the run and seeking Tagomi’s aid. The Japanese test an atomic bomb. Joe Blake is sent on a diplomatic mission to San Francisco. Kido hires a new sergeant. Nicole Dormer arrives in New York to head a new propaganda campaign. The Smiths struggle with the aftermath of Thomas’ death.
Juliana recognizes that her and Tagomi’s fates are intertwined. Tagomi and Admiral Inokuchi realize the Reich is imposing a covert oil embargo on the Pacific States. Reichsmarschall Rockwell and J. Edgar Hoover plot against John Smith. Helen starts therapy to cope with her grief over Thomas, and takes drastic action to protect her family. Kido and Tagomi clash over Juliana.
Juliana and Tagomi pursue the mysteries of the films and Juliana reunites with an old friend. Childan is anxious to return to San Francisco now that the reprisals have stopped, but a potential new romance makes Ed reluctant to leave. Kido receives intelligence that sets him on a new path. Smith finds himself celebrated by Nazi high society at a screening of Nicole’s new film about Thomas.
A new community fights for survival in the Neutral Zone. Juliana and Joe get reacquainted, while Joe continues his undercover work for Himmler. Wyatt drops in on Juliana in San Francisco. Smith’s past rises up to haunt him. Ed and Childan face a challenge on their way home to San Francisco. As tensions between the Reich and the Empire rise, Tagomi finds his life may be in danger.
