Samuel is a 40 something Russian Jewish émigré, inventor and designer of bespoke hearing aids, whose clients include former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. The series follows Samuel and his family, wife Miriam and children Hannah and Sasha, as he is approached by MI5 to demonstrate his work.

As Samuel's life becomes more and more intertwined with his mission, how far is he willing to let things unravel for his cause? And who can he truly trust?
