A new recruit to the CIA quickly rises through the ranks, but the more he learns, the more he begins to question the mentor who showed him the ropes….
Nothing is what it seems. Trust no one.
James Clayton (Farrell) is the top prospect of the latest CIA recruits. His attitude may not be in line with a typical trainee, but he is one of the smartest graduating seniors in the country – and he’s just the person that Walter Burke (Pacino) wants in the Agency.
James thinks the CIA’s mission is an intriguing alternative to an ordinary life, but before he becomes an Ops Officer, James has to survive the Agency’s secret training ground, where green recruits are molded into seasoned veterans.
As Burke teaches him the ropes and the rules of the game, James quickly rises but just when James starts to question his role and his cat-and-mouse relationship with his mentor, Burke taps him for a special assignment to smoke out a mole.
But it soon becomes clear to James, the only thing more dangerous than crossing the line is trusting the man who took you there.
