Storyline

William Alexander Morgan, an American, helps Castro and the Cuban rebels overthrow Fulgencio Batista. Morgan reaches the status of Comandante, the sole foreigner other than Argentinian Che Guevara to be so highly regarded. Shortly after, his motives for being there are subject to suspicion and Morgan is imprisoned. He is charged with working for U.S. intelligence and faces a firing squad. At the same time, his exploits as a rebel soldier lead J. Edgar Hoover and everyone else scrambling to sort out his motives and figure out who he is working for.
