Joseph Turner (Robert Redford - Out of Africa, The Sting, The Great Gatsby) works for the C.I.A. analysing espionage novels to find plots that might be useful to investigators. Upon returning from lunch one day, he discovers with terror that his colleagues in the agency have all been ruthlessly murdered. Slowly a conspiracy inside the C.I.A. unfolds, and Turnertales it upon himself to expose the truth.
Masterfully directed by Sydney Pollack (Out of Africa, The Interpreter), Three Days of the Condor is the story of one mans struggle to discover who are his friends, and who are his enemies.
