In Brooklyn, New York, in 1957, Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance) retrieves a secret message from a park bench and reads it just before FBI agents burst into his rented room. He prevents discovery of the message, but other evidence in the room leads to his arrest and prosecution as a Soviet spy.
The FBI offers to drop the charges if Abel cooperates and reveals the details of his spy network, but he refuses. He goes to trial, but the government wants it to appear to be "a fair trial" so that the Soviet Union cannot use it for propaganda. The bar association asks James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks) to defend Abel. Donovan worked on the prosecutions of Nazi war crimes in the Nuremberg trials, and since then has been an insurance lawyer with experience in negotiation. Donovan takes his work seriously, although his family, his firm, the prosecuting attorneys and the judge do not expect or want him to do so.
