Based on a James le Carré novel, this thriller reveals the internal cold wars in the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) in the early 1970s. Forced into retirement after a botched mission in Hungary, George Spy returns to track down a Soviet-mole in the top ranks of MI6. His investigation reveals the layers of bureaucracy, secrecy, and lies within modern intelligence systems.
