The Night Manager is set at the height of the Arab Spring, where hotel night manager, Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston) receives a plea from an elegant, well-connected guest. Compelled to do what he thinks is right, Pine makes contact with his friend at the British Embassy - but his actions unwittingly draw him into the terrifying world of ruthless arms dealer, Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie). Soon he is recruited by a government agent to infiltrate Roper’s trusted inner circle.
