Ambitious Welsh journalist Gareth Jones (James Norton) travels to Moscow in an effort to interview Stalin on the Soviet Union’s successful economic expansion. But Mr. Jones receives a tip from an informant about an international conspiracy.
Jones unofficially travels to Ukraine, where he uncovers the truth behind Stalin's plan: a genocidal famine, killing millions of people. Jones must now decide whether to keep quiet about this dark secret or risk his life to expose the truth.
Jones' journey was the dramatic inspiration behind George Orwell's Animal Farm.
