Synopsis

This documentary is an in- depth, intimate exploration of the true story behind Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning film Argo. The story of the "Canadian Caper" is told by the man who knows it best: Ken Taylor, Canada's former ambassador to Iran, who hid the six Americans in his official residence and obtained the counterfeit documents that allowed them to make their dramatic escape from Tehran. The film uncovers new information and adds valuable context, including an historical overview of Iran, interviews with the rescued Americans, former Prime Minister Joe Clark, ex-CIA officer Tony Mendez, and many others. Based on the book "Our Man In Tehran," written by Robert Wright.
