The story follows Dench’s Joan, a retired physicist whose tranquil life is interrupted in 2000 by a visit from British secret service MI5. Cookson will play Joan in her younger days as a student at Cambridge University who falls in love with a committed communist and, later, finds her loyalty to her country tested while employed in the UK’s secret nuclear programme.
