Harry Block was a former World War II veteran who faked his own death and eventually made his way to Central America where he assumed the new identity of Harry Kraft.

During a war in Guatemala, a CIA operative blackmailed Block into assassinating Rosa de Santiis, a popular leader in opposition to the CIA puppet dictator, General Zavala. Afterward, he returned to the United States, taking a road trip from Hollywood to Chicago to New York City, exploring myriad avenues of 1950s American culture.
