Synopsis
A seven-part "Masterpiece Theatre" presentation, adapted from John LeCarre's bestselling and largely autobiographical spy thriller. The story of "perfect spy" Magnus Pym, who had been tutored by his father, a super con man, into a steady stream of scams from boyhood on. A manhunt begins when he disappears while working for British Intelligence. After a lifetime of deception, the perfect spy seeks to unmask himself and discover who he really is.
