Plot: Based on an actual incident, THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN is a tale of espionage about two upper-middle class kids who, in 1977, became spies for the Soviet Union. Disillusioned with the American government, a drop-out seminary student, Christopher Boyce (Timothy Hutton), begins stealing classified information from his workplace. With the help of his boyhood friend, strung-out cocaine addict Daulton Lee (Sean Penn), Boyce begins selling government secrets to the Soviets, with disastrous results.
