Hutton stars as Aldrich Ames, a longtime, second-rate CIA employee with an expensive Colombian-born second wife, Rosario (Pena), and a lot of debts. So Ames turns weasel and begins to sell secrets to the Russians in the mid-'80s, which resulted in the deaths of at least 10 agents. Plowright is the CIA analyst in charge of plugging the leak. Both Ames' were arrested and sent to prison in 1994; Rosario was released in 1999 and returned to Bogota.
