1998

With a plot resembling a Shakespearean tragedy, the 90-minute TV movie is loosely based on actual incidents involving two Canadian diplomats in the 1960s. The film's central character is Harry Raymond, Canada's ambassador in Moscow at the time, who at the top of his career is implicated in the brutal murder of a young Russian artist.
Raymond and his emotionally fragile wife Marianne are called to Ottawa by his old friend Michael Riordan, the minister of external affairs. An investigation into Harry's life reveals secrets that threaten the careers of both men and their friendship, and unveils the surprising role Marianne has been playing in her husband's life.
