Antony Beevor's new book tells the extraordinary story of Olga Chekhova, a niece of Anton Chekhov and a famous film star in Nazi Germany. But throughout the 1920s, 30s and 40s, was she also a spy for Soviet intelligence, recruited by her brother Lev, a Russian composer? The film follows Beevor as he investigates Olga and Lev's story, a family saga of loyalty, betrayal and survival.
