The true story of Christopher Boyce, a young All-American man whose job as a guard for sensitive documents shatters his faith in his country and leads him to a sometimes comic, sometimes chilling sideline as a spy for the Soviets, aided by his scruffy buddy, Daulton; it can't last, though, and the consequences are tremendous for Boyce and his family.

Excellent drama about 2 alienated, spoiled punks who go afoul of the federal government, each for his own reasons.

Good performances and a hot script makes this a winner.
