While at Cambridge University in 1932, Philby and Maclean are approached by intelligence officers and requested to spy. It does not take Philby too long to realise that it is not the British intelligence services who want them, but the Soviets. They agree to spy for the Soviets and once the university year ends, Philby is sent on assignment to Vienna, where he marries committed Communist Litzi Friedman. Once back in England, Philby's runner, Blunt, tells him that the marriage is not in the interests of the mission and Philby has to end it.
