In the shadow of war, one man showed the world what we stood for.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union captures U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers after shooting down his U-2 spy plane. Sentenced to 10 years in prison, Powers' only hope is New York lawyer James Donovan, recruited by a CIA operative to negotiate his release. Donovan boards a plane to Berlin, hoping to win the young man's freedom through a prisoner exchange. If all goes well, the Russians would get Rudolf Abel, the convicted spy who Donovan defended in court.

Bridge of Spies: Der Unterhändler

1957, als der Kalte Krieg auf einem Höhepunkt ist, gelingt den USA die Verhaftung des Sowjetagenten Rudolf Abel. Er wird vernommen, verweigert aber die Zusammenarbeit. Als Pflichtverteidiger bekommt er jemanden zur Seite gestellt, dessen Fähigkeiten außer Frage stehen, der jedoch als Versicherungsanwalt wenig Expertise für seinen neuen Auftrag mitbringt: James Donovan. Der Jurist ist skeptisch, zumal die Verteidigung eines feindlichen Agenten von vielen als Landesverrat angesehen wird.Donovans persönliche Lage spitzt sich zu, als ihn der CIA-Beamte Hoffman , beindruckt von Donovans Auftritten im Gerichtssaal, mit einer neuen Mission betraut. Das U-2-Spionage-Flugzeug des US-Piloten Francis Gary Powers wurde über der Sowjetunion abgeschossen. Donovan soll nach Ost-Berlin, um mit den Sowjets die Freilassung zu verhandeln – und einen Gefangenenaustausch zu initiieren…
