After learning that a breach remains at the CIA, Sandy butts heads with Jeanne Vertefeuille, the senior officer conducting a thorough review of their operations. Jeanne's presence also rattles Ames, who feels increasing pressure from the Soviets to provide more information. On the home front, Ames feels even more pressure, caught between his love for his wife Rosario, and placating her spendthrift lifestyle.
"The Assets" will look inside the true, personal stories of the conclusion of the Cold War as told by the keepers of the nation's secrets: the CIA.
It is based on the book "Circle of Treason: A CIA Account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men He Betrayed" by retired CIA officers Sandra Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille. Together they hunted down CIA officer Aldrich Ames, a mole who fed information to the Soviet Union that contributed to the deaths of at least ten Soviet intelligence officers who had spied for the United States.
