In 1950, Harvard and Yale friends Jack McCauliffe, Leo Kritzky and Yevgeny Tsipin decide to join the hottest 'game' of their age: Cold War espionage. It's the start of recruitment for competing secret services, whose greatest feat is double- or triple-crossing or finding out the adversary doing so.
