While working for RTX, a civil defense contractor, Boyce becomes cynical of his government's dealings and hatches a plan to leak U.S. security secrets to Russia. Daulton Lee, dubbed the Snowman because of his cocaine smuggling operations, sets up a deal with the KGB in Mexico to aid Boyce with his plot. But because of his drug addiction, Lee is mistrusted and the plan begins to fall apart as they both realize they are in way over their heads.
