The Plot, Courtesy of AMC+:
The espionage Cold War series follows the awful dilemma faced by the English spy Fielding Scott (Cooper), as he is sent to Berlin in 1961 on a mission to find out the source of the leak of vital security information. The Russians, it seems, know everything. Someone in Berlin is giving away all the secrets of the Western – American, British, and French – powers.
Fielding has been given possibly the hardest job in the world: clean up Berlin. He must find out who the traitor is and expose, arrest, or eliminate that person.
