The true story of British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) unwittingly recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history.  Forming an unlikely partnership in the hope of preventing a nuclear confrontation, Wynne and Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky (Merab Ninidze) work together to provide the crucial intelligence used to defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis. 

“This is a damn good, explosively tense story that focuses on the friendship that develops between two men on opposite sides.  And it is plainly wonderful.”  Deborah Ross, The Spectator
