In 1880s London, pornographic bookseller Verloc (Bob Hoskins) is a double agent for the Russian government, providing information to Chief Inspector Heat (Jim Broadbent) about the lazy anarchist organization he's involved with. In order for the anarchists to be arrested, an act of terrorism must occur. So Verloc decides to set up bombs, which leads to tragedy -- not only for himself, but also for his family, including wife Winnie (Patricia Arquette) and brother-in-law Stevie (Christian Bale).
