Review by Publisher Summary 1

In 1934, four brilliant young men at Cambridge University are recruited to spy for Russia. Fueled by youthful idealism, a passion for social justice, a talent for lying and a hatred for fascism, the four take huge personal risks to pass Britains biggest secrets to Moscow. Starring four of Britains most talented young actors, this epic yet intimate drama brings one of the twentieth centurys most compelling true stories to exciting new life.
