Season 2 / Episode 1 and airs on 16 December 2016 00:00
The central characters are Juliana Crain, Frank Frink, Joe Blake, John Smith and Nobusuke Tagomi, and the series takes place in 1962.
Juliana Crain is a San Francisco woman whose half-sister Trudy has just been killed almost in front of her by the Kempeitai. Just before she dies she hands Juliana a film reel that contains a series of faux news clips depicting an alternate history in which the Allies won World War II and Germany and Japan were defeated. The film is entitled The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, and is part of a series of similar newsreels said to have been created by someone referred to as "The Man in the High Castle". Juliana believes the newsreel reflects some sort of alternate reality, and that it is part of some kind of larger truth about how the world should be. Her boyfriend, Frank Frink (who keeps his Jewish roots hidden in order to avoid extradition and death at the hands of the Nazis), believes that the newsreel was created entirely by The Man in the High Castle for his own reasons and has no relation to real-life events. Juliana learns Trudy was carrying the film to Canon City, Colorado, in the Rocky Mountain States, where she was going to meet someone. Juliana decides to travel there in Trudy's place to find out what her half-sister's mission was. When she arrives in Canon City, she encounters Joe Blake. (source: en.wikipedia.org)
It's 1962, America has lost WWII; the east is the Greater Nazi Reich and the west, the Japanese Pacific States. Amidst this oppression there is new hope - films that seem to show a different world.
