Summary
Former Canadian ambassador to Iran Ken Taylor, who facilitated the 1980 escape of six US Embassy workers during the Iran hostage crisis, takes us inside the true story behind the Academy Award-winning Argo in this fascinating, in-depth documentary portrait. While Ben Affleck's Academy Award-winning Argo rekindled public interest in and awareness of Canada's pivotal role in the rescue of six US embassy staffers during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis, the film was entertainment first and foremost - "based on a true story," but not the whole story
