The story of O2, penned by Tiit Aleksejev, Eriikka Etholén-Paju and Tom Abrams, kicks off on 23 August 1939, when Europe started fearing an imminent war, and the Soviet Union and Hitler’s Germany shook the world to its core by signing a non-aggression pact. At that very moment, an Estonian agent is murdered and a Soviet source claims that there is a traitor in their ranks. Feliks Kangur (played by Priit Võigemast), an Estonian spy, will be assigned to catch the traitor. Meanwhile, global political and military events start to unfold at dizzying speed, and Feliks finds out that the Red Army has kicked off an operation codenamed Volcano to annex Estonia. Moreover, Feliks is also burdened by a secret regarding his lover Maria, a young Polish art historian.
