Synopsis

Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) is a long-serving MI5 officer. His best friend and superior, Director General Benedict Baron (Michael Gambon), summons Johnny to a meeting with MI5 agent Jill Tankard (Judy Davis) and Home Secretary Anthea Catcheside (Saskia Reeves) regarding a potentially explosive report. Worricker verbally highlights a note at the foot of page eight alleging that Prime Minister Alec Beasley (Ralph Fiennes) has knowledge of secret overseas prisons where terror suspects have been tortured by U.S. authorities. If true, Beasley did not share any intelligence gained with the security services, at the possible expense of British lives.
