In 1919, Sir Mansfield Cummings' intelligence section, Section 1C, is going to be folded into MI5. Spies coming through 1C all come from Oxford and Cambridge, aristocrats who stick out like sore thumbs. Cummings gets hold of a blue collar war veteran, trains him and sends him on a crucial mission: an attack on the British embassy in Russia which leads to the theft of coded assassination orders signed by the King of England. The spy is tasked with recovering them because if they are discovered, WWII would begin with those countries on opposite sides. Cummings etches his place in history and proves the need for MI6. modified plot formulation from deadline.com
