Storyline:On November 4, 1979, at the boiling point of the Iranian Revolution, militant students stormed the US embassy in Tehran and took 52 Americans hostage. However, six Americans manage to escape and hide in the Canadian embassy. But even there, they are still in mortal danger and it is only a matter of time until the hostage-takers find and kill them again. But CIA Liberation Specialist Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) has a risky plan to bring his six compatriots home. His team plans to direct filming for a fictional film and to distribute the hidden embassy staff members as members of the film crew. As part of the production hustle and bustle surrounding the fictional film "Argo", the hostages are to be unobtrusively removed from the country without the Iranian government suspecting.
