'If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.' E.M. Forster
Moscow 1987 and the Cold War begins to thaw. After declining his offer for more than 30 years, novelist Graham Greene travels into the heart of Soviet Russia to meet his old MI6 boss, Kim Philby.
Under the watchful eye of Kim’s Russian wife, Rufa, the two men set about catching up on old times. With a new world order breaking out around them, how much did the writer of The Third Man know about Philby’s secret life as a spy and did Philby betray his friend as well as his country? …and who is listening-in in the next-door room?
