Plot – On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its peak, a group of militants enters the US Embassy in Tehran and takes 52 hostages. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to escape and take refuge in the house of the Canadian Ambassador. Knowing full well that it is just a matter of time before the six will be traced and most likely killed, Tony Mendez, a CIA agent specialist in covert actions, sets up a risky plan to let them flee the country.
