Synopsis

THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN is a true story of two young men of privilege, money and ambition who end up selling government secrets to the Russians. Christopher Boyce works a low-level job at a defense plant where he uncovers documents that prove that the C.I.A. is secretly coercing foreign governments. He confides in his friend, Daulton Lee, a reckless drug dealer and user, who convinces him to sell this information to the Soviets for big bucks. Lee boldly cuts a deal with the KGB, but soon the stakes spin out of control as the Soviets up the ante. Lee descends further into drug abuse, and the C.I.A. prepare to take the informants down.
