Synopsis

Documentary looking at the events leading up the death of Alexander Litvinenko, the Russian ex-spy who passed away under suspicious circumstances in 2006. Litvinenko had spoken publicly two years before his death about his former superiors at the FSB and their apparent involvement in the assassination of Russian tycoon, Boris Berezovsky. Litvinenko continued to make claims against the Russian government until he fell ill and died from a rare type of radiation poisoning. This documentary explores his accusations of corruption through interviews with the man himself prior to his death, as well as members of his family and journalists.
