The extraordinary untold story of Gareth Jones, an ambitious young Welsh journalist who traveled to the Soviet Union in 1933 and uncovered the appalling truth behind the Soviet “utopia” and Stalin’s regime.
Gareth Jones, is getting ready to tackle a big story - a rapid modernisation of the Soviet Union. He goes to Moscow to do an interview with Stalin. There he meets a British journalist, Ada Brooks, and thanks to her he discovers that the truth about the Stalinist regime is brutally muffled by Soviet censors. On hearing gossip about a great famine in the USSR, Jones sets out on a lonely journey through Ukraine. He witnesses the tragedy of Holodomor and describes it after his return to London. The publication is silenced and its authenticity is questioned by Western journalists who remain under pressure from the Kremlin. Despite death threats Gareth continues his fight for the truth. He decides to share his discoveries with a young, aspiring writer - George Orwell.
