1933. Gareth Jones (James Norton) is an ambitious Welsh journalist who gained fame after his report on being the first foreign journalist to fly with Hitler. On leaving a government role, Jones decides to travel to Moscow in an attempt to get an interview with Stalin himself. Hearing murmurs of government-induced famine, Jones travels clandestinely to Ukraine, where he witnesses the atrocities of man-made starvation. Deported back to London, Jones publishes an article revealing the horrors he witnessed but is accused of being a liar by those who have an interest in silencing him. As the death count mounts, Jones has to fight for the truth.

Mr Jones also stars Vanessa Kirby as journalist Ada Brooks, Peter Sarsgaard as Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Walter Duranty, Joseph Mawle as George Orwell and Kenneth Craham who plays David Lloyd George.
