Synopsis:

The Jacksons are a nice middle-aged English couple whose best friends are their Canadian neighbors, the Krogers. Their world abruptly changes when a detective from Scotland Yard asks to use their house as an observation station to try and foil a Soviet spy ring operating in the area.   Torn between loyalty and the government’s demands, the family life is irrevocably altered.

The question of the role of the ordinary citizen in our society is still relevant today.  Is it ever possible for the average man or woman to make anything more than a token stand against officialdom? Is it not potentially risky to allow the ‘state’ greater moral license than the individual?  What would you do?

The action takes place in a London suburb, 1960-1961

We'd love to hear your comments!
