Hamburg, 1582.
The city flourishes with its mercantile prosperity and marine might. Many come to the city seeking fortune or fleeing prosecution.

Your name is Abraham Ruah, a Sephardic Jew who has fled the inquisition in Portugal. For you, Hamburg is a place of opportunity and freedom. The city has everything, but it’s missing good food. You’ve decided to sell the small fish cakes your grandma used to make.

You’re at the pier getting the cod when you feel a blade on your neck. This can’t be good.
