SYNOPSIS
Set in the Soviet Union during the Stalinist era, Child 44 follows security officer Leo Demidov, played by Tom Hardy, as he fights to uncover the shocking truth about a serial killer in a country where the existence of `crime` is vehemently denied by the government. The film is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Tom Rob Smith.
