In the 1960s, two Russian KGB agents were trained and set up as 'sleepers', the inconspicuous all-American Jennings couple Philip and Elisabeth, which raises their utterly unsuspecting kids Henry and Paige. Now, they must prevent the defection of KGB agent Nikolai Timoshev, formerly one of their abusive instructors, whom they manage to kidnap. By coincidence, their new neighbor is FBI agent Stan Beeman. Loyalties are tested among the spouses and by KGB general Vijktor Zhukov. Written by

I-66 did not open until August 1982, well after the supposed 1981 setting. See more
