After being discharged from the army, Edward ‘Snowden’ took a job in the NSA to continue serving his country. What he learnt there disgusted him – and would shock the world.

Legendary director Oliver Stone takes another critical look at modern-day America with ‘Snowden’, the true story of a man who’s been called hero, villain, patriot and traitor.
