A lawyer named James Donovan, whose specialty is in insurance settlements, agrees to take on the case of a KGB spy, Rudolph Abel, after federal agents find incriminating documents in his room. No one thinks, not even Donovan's own wife, that Donovan will try very hard to get the spy acquitted, even though Donovan takes his work seriously. When he tries to give Abel a fair trial, it's met with hate mail and an attempt on Donovan's life. He still pushes on to give Abel a fair defense.

The verdict on Abel is that he is guilty on all charges. Donovan tries to appeal to the judge for thirty years, and takes the case to the Supreme Court to say that the evidence in the case is tainted by a bad search warrant. He loses 5-4.

After two Americans (Frederic Pryor and Francis Gary Powers) are captured by Soviets, Donovan tries to put a two-for-one trade together. Powers was shot down while on a U-2 spy plane, while Pryor is an American economics graduate student trying to get his girlfriend into West Berlin before the Wall goes up. The CIA only wants one prisoner, Powers, but will allow for negotiations about Pryor to happen as long as they don't damage their chances to get Powers back.
