Plot Summary

MI5 personnel are caught up in a traffic jam in London while escorting the CIA's most wanted terrorist to an arranged CIA handover point, when he is suddenly rescued by armed men on motorbikes. Harry Pearce, the head of Counter-Terrorism at MI5 is blamed for the terrorist escaping. Especially as Harry disappeared shortly after the incident. An ex-agent, Will Holloway, and protégé of Harry's is recalled by MI5 to assist in finding and bringing Harry in. However Harry has disappeared for a reason. Certain that there is a traitor in a senior position in MI5, he enlists the somewhat reluctant Will to help him in uncovering the rat or rats concerned. Written by Woodland Outlaw

Trivia Star Kit Harington received training from an ex-SAS soldier, so he could believably play a former MI5 agent in this film. See more »
Goofs When Will Holloway is rescued in Moscow, he gets into a Tesla Model S. When the car pulls away, the sounds of urgent engine revving and gear changes are heard. The Tesla Model S is a fully electric car and hence makes no such sounds. See more »

Quotes Will Holloway: [pointing gun at him] Why'd you bring him here?
Harry Pearce: I made a choice; to stop the attack on London. To expose the traitor.
Will Holloway: With no backup plan?
Harry Pearce: I had a backup plan. You. Why do you think I kept you out of that room?
Will Holloway: People are still dead, Harry.
Harry Pearce: Far fewer than would have died in the bombings.
Will Holloway: How do you make a choice like that?
Harry Pearce: It's my job.
