Judi Dench stars as English-born Joan Stanley, a Soviet and communist party sympathizer who becomes employed as a British government civil servant, and gets recruited by the KGB in the mid 1930s.
She successfully passes nuclear bomb secrets to the Soviet Union, which enables them to keep up with the west in the development of atomic weapons.
She remains undetected until, aged 87, in 1999, there’s a knock on her front door. Loosely based on the story of Melita Norwood, a British civil servant who supplied intelligence to the Russians for forty years.
