Synopsis: On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the American embassy in Tehran and captured dozens of American hostages, sparking a 444-day ordeal and a quake in global politics still felt today. But there's a little-known footnote to the crisis: six Americans escaped. And a midlevel agent named Antonio Mendez devised an ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue them. Armed with foreign film visas, Mendez and an unlikely team of CIA agents and Hollywood insiders -- directors, producers, and actors -- traveled to Tehran under the guise of scouting locations for a fake film called Argo. While pretending to find the perfect backdrops, the team succeeded in contacting the escapees and smuggling them out of Iran without a single shot being fired.
