During the peak of the Cold War in the 1980s, Andrew, an all-American kid, is recruited by the CIA to train as a spy. When Andrew gets assigned to the US Embassy in Moscow, he is excited for the chance to explore his family’s Russian roots while serving his country. Loneliness and boredom turn out to be what Andrew finds working for the embassy—until he meets Alexandr, a young Russian actor. They strike up a friendship based on mutual interests which leads to a deeper relationship than Andrew ever imagined.
However, Alexandr has a terrible secret he must share with Andrew, that could end not only their friendship but also their lives. This story awakens each of us to the consequences of every choice we make, and the choices that were made for us, even before we were born. Is the path you are on, and the
life you are living, a reflection of your true self? Do you sometimes see glimpses of the reality underneath the scene you are living, like an actor playing a role in a story that was written for you?
