(mbc.net) Pierce Brosnan portrays Andy Osnard, a disgraced M16 spy who was booted from the United Kingdom and relocated to Panama -- an uneventful, undesirable destination for many agents.  He desperately wants to return to London but must discover a juicy tidbit of intelligence to do so.

Osnard connects with Harry Pendel (Geoffrey Rush), a tailor for the country's elite whose wife,Louisa (Jamie Lee Curtis) works for the Panama Canal Authority.  Pendel is coerced into fabricating tall tales that Andy relays back to his superiors, which inadvertently trigger talks of an American invasion.
