Good Shepherd

The early history of the CIA is viewed through the prism of one man's life. An eager, optimistic student at Yale, Edward Wilson is recruited to join the secret society Skull and Bones, a brotherhood of future world leaders. His acute mind, spotless reputation and sincere belief in America render him a prime candidate for a career in intelligence, and he is recruited to work for the OSS, the precursor to the CIA, during WWII. As one of the covert founders of the CIA, Edward's idealism is steadily eroded by a growing suspicious nature, reflective of a world settling into the long paranoia of the Cold War.
