As the KGB bureaucrat who leaked the list of his agency's spy network to the West, Sergei Gregoriev — and the French engineer who was his courier — helped end the Soviet Union. Director Christian Carion tells their story as a nail-biting spy drama played against the gathering gloom of an imploding empire.
