The film takes place in 1950’s Moscow and centres on communist Katya (Rebecca Ferguson), who secretly spies for the Americans in the Cold War arms race. When she lands her biggest assignment, stealing secrets from rising government star Alexander (Sam Reid), the last thing she expects is to fall in love with him. When Alexander unwittingly closes the net around his own wife, Katya decides to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect him - a sacrifice that Alexander only uncovers forty years later.
