Synopsis by Augustine Chay

Emilia Clarke, Jack Huston and Sophie Lowe star in director Phillip Noyce’s adaptation of Joe Sharkey’s 1993 nonfiction book of the same name. A rookie FBI agent becomes romantically involved with one of his informants after being assigned to the crime-ridden Appalachian coal town of Pikeville, Kentucky. Their illicit and tumultuous affair led to her murder — and his historic status as the only known FBI agent to confess to murder.
