Our Kind of Traitor

In brief: Based on a novel by master spy thriller writer John Le Carré. While on holiday in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple, Perry and Gail, befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian, Dima, who unbeknownst to them is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia. Dima wants to cut a deal with British intelligence that would guarantee the safety of his family in exchange for information about politicians on the mob’s take. Dima’s crime overlords want him dead and there’s a short window of time to escape into the welcoming arms of the UK as an informant. When Dima asks for their help to deliver classified information to the British Secret Services, Perry and Gail get caught in a dangerous world of international espionage and dirty politics. The couple is propelled on a perilous journey through Paris and Bern, a safe house in the French Alps, to the murky corners of the City of London and an alliance with the British Government via ruthless and determined MI6 agent.
