The FBI infiltrates one of their agents in the US Communist Party. This causes big problems in the normal life of the agent. Nobody knows that he is with the FBI, neither his family. Written by

The Communist Party USA was established in 1919. In 1921 it changed its name to The Workers Party of America. It was banned in 1954 by an act of Congress (the Communist Control Act of 1954). At its peak in 1944 the membership rose to 80.000 members but by mid-1950s it dropped to only 5000 members, including 1500 FBI informants. See more »
Early in the film there's a shot at an airport where we see planes moving outside a window. The outside shot is flipped: the "PAN AMERICAN" logo on the side of the plane is backwards. See more »
It's over the top, but interesting. BTW, there were Commie Spys..
Yes, it is over the top.
Yes, it is one-sided.
But for people to deny that Communists were infiltrating positions of influence is just wrong headed revisionism.
Cvetic was a real person. He did infiltrate the CPUSA. He did testify against the CP. It is hard to know just what is true and what isn't because BOTH sides, Hoover's FBI and the Liberal revisionists keep spinning their own version.
But after the fall of the USSR, the KGB files affirmed that there were many successful infiltrations and manipulations of the media and govt. It's just straight facts.
Klaus Fuchs, The Rosenbergs, Alger Hiss are just a few examples.
It is terrifying how the younger generations are ignorant or misinformed about the past. What will they say about 9-11 in 50 years?
