Based on a true story, Argo records the life or death undercover covert operation to rescue six American diplomats, which extended behind the scenes of the Iran-hostage- crisis, the truth of which was screened from the public for decades. On November 4, 1979, the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point; militants stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran and took 52 Americans as hostage. However, in the middle of the chaos, six Americans managed to get-away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Well knowing about the fact that it is only a matter of time before they are found out and likely killed, a CIA “infiltration” specialist, Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) comes up with a hazardous plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it happens in the movies.
