Sergio is a Chilean spy. Sort of.

He is recruited by a private investigator who needs someone to infiltrate a retirement home for a client who suspects her mother is being abused. However Sergio is 83, not 007, and not an easy trainee when it comes to technology and espionage. But he is a keen student, looking for ways to distract himself after recently losing his wife. While gathering intelligence, Sergio grows close to several residents and realises that the menacing truth beneath the surface is not what anyone suspected.

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, The Mole Agent is a stylish combination of observational documentary and a hilarious and heart-warming spy movie. A unique meditation on compassion and loneliness that will infiltrate your heart and never let go.
