A CIA operative Nathan Muir (Robert Redford) is on the brink of retirement from the field when he learns that his protege Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt) has been arrested in China on a charge of espionage. No stranger to the machinations of the CIA's top echelon, Muir hones all his skills and irreverent manner in order to find a way to free Bishop. As he embarks on his mission, Muir recalls how he recruited and trained the young rookie, then a serving sergeant in Vietnam, their turbulent times together as front-line operatives and the woman who ultimately threatened their friendship.
