On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants
storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst
of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of Canadian
Ambassador Ken Taylor (Garber). Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six
are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA
to intervene. The CIA turns to their top “exfiltration” specialist, Tony Mendez (Affleck),
to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan
so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.
