Clive Owen and Gillian Anderson in a spy thriller revealing the secrets of the British intelligence. A gripping story of a peculiar relationship between a British agent and an Irish extremist whom he recruited.

Colette is an IRA activist. Mac works for the British intelligence, his job is to recruit spies inside the terrorist structures. When she gets arrested during a failed terrorist attempt in the London metro, he gives her a choice: she can co-operate and return home, or she will never see her son again. Deciding to work for the British intelligence, Collete does not know that the IRA members have been trying to find a spy in their ranks for a while now. A mutual surveillance begins. From now on she will fear her own shadow.
