Kandahar (2023)

Tom Harris is a freelance undercover operative working for the CIA to insert malware into an Iranian nuclear research facility. Tom’s cover is a field technician for a Swiss communications contractor. His mission is successful, and the malware causes the facility to self destruct, preventing the Iranians from acquiring more nuclear bombs.

The Iranian government has been monitoring a British journalist in Iran named Luna. She receives evidence from a whistle blower of the CIA’s ongoing sabotage of Iran’s nuclear programs. After the facility is destroyed, she is arrested by an Iranian security agency. She tells the Iranians she suspects a link between the facility’s destruction and the Swiss contractor because their contracts are next to government sites. The next day, Harris’s partner in the operation, Oliver, is murdered by the Iranian Special Force after both Oliver and Harris’s identity are compromised.

Tom leaves Iran en route to London via Dubai. While in Dubai, his flight to London is delayed, and he visits his CIA handler, Roman Chalmers. Roman is a Muslim convert, living under the outward pretense of a Dubai socialite, a lifestyle he secretly despises. Roman claims to have delayed the flight to force this meeting. Tom accepts Roman’s lucrative CIA contract for a job in Herat, Afghanistan, because it will pay enough to cover his daughter’s medical university expenses.
