Abstract:

Based on the true-life story of Christopher Boyce and Daulton Lee, boyhood friends. In their early twenties, Boyce has just quit the seminary and taken a job at TRW where he soon has access to the company's top-secret defense files, including evidence of the CIA's tampering with elections overseas. Lee is a runaway, paroled heroin addict. The ideological disillusionment of one and the greed and need for excitement of the other lead them to sell secrets to the Russians. As they proceed, the stakes get higher and the risks larger. -- Summary adapted from container.
