Greg Olliver directs this documentary exploring the life of English writer Micky Burn. The feature follows Micky as he retraces the unusual events of his adult life in which he had an affair with the notorious Soviet Union communist spy Guy Burgess and later developed an adoration for Nazism and Adolf Hitler, who signed his copy of 'Mein Kampf' in 1936. But after changing his opinion of the party he volunteered for the independent companies and fought against Germany in the Second World War where he was captured as a prisoner of war during the St. Nazaire Raid and imprisoned in Colditz Castle. Following his eventual release at the end of the war he was credited with saving the life of a six-year-old Audrey Hepburn, began working as a reporter for The Times and became a committed Marxist.
