Plot – Christopher Boyce doesn’t take vows due to his lack of vocation. His father, an ex-FBI agent, hires him as delivery boy at the TRX, a company that builds spy satellites for the CIA. The guy climbs the ladder too quickly, so he gets moved to the “Black Vault”, in very close contact with “top secret” data. Here he catches an extremely private message and realizes that the CIA is involved in voting cheats that disadvantage the Labor Party in Australia. Chris is disgusted and decides to work for the USSR: he reveals everything to his childhood friend Daulton Lee, a drug addict and dealer, who operates between the USSR’s embassy and Mexico city.
