RINO is documentary portrait of Karel Köcher, supposedly the most important communist agent to infiltrate the CIA. There are few reliable sources as to the double agent activities, therefore the filmmakers aim their camera primarily at Köcher. The result is an unconventional story that tells us more about a man living a double life, as opposed to a sensationalised account of spying. The mystery surrounding his actions also envelopes Köcher the individual: it is difficult to figure out what is going through the mind of someone so perfectly in control and capable of beating a lie detector.
