In the Second World War, Edward Wilson becomes a member of the intelligence service OSS. When the Cold War begins Wilson joins CIA. As the Bay of Pigs debacle unfolds, Wilson, now head of CIA counterintelligence, begins searching for a mole in the organization who tipped off the Cubans to the clandestine invasion. In the course of searching for a traitor, Wilson looks back over the betrayals of his own life, from abandoning his true love for a shotgun wedding with his friend's sister, whom he impregnated, to the murder of his mentor and finally, the assassination of his own son's fiancee, a double agent.
