Synopsis

James Donovan, an insurance claims lawyer, is thrust into the center of the Cold War when he agrees to represent a Soviet spy captured in New York, committed to ensuring the man receives a fair trial no matter his politics. Later, an American U-2 spy plane is shot down over Soviet airspace, and the pilot, Francis Gary Powers, is captured and imprisoned. The CIA, while categorically denying any knowledge of the mission, is fearful that Powers may be coerced into revealing classified information. Having witnessed Donovan's impressive skills in the courtroom, a CIA operative secretly reaches out to recruit him for a national security mission of great importance. Fueled by a love for his country, unwavering belief in his convictions and a tremendous amount of courage, Donovan is soon on a plane to Berlin to negotiate a prisoner exchange between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.
