Summary, etc.: Juan Pujol Garcia, self-made double agent, is the only person to have been decorated by both the Allies and the Axis for service during World War II.

In this documentary thriller, director Edmon Roch interweaves fragments of propaganda footage, interviews with key players in Pujol's life, and clips from Hollywood films.
