Synopsis
Set in 1965 in the midst of the Cold War, Totems follows a French scientist, Francis Mareuil, as he begins working as a spy. While working for the French Secret Service and the CIA, Mareuil meets Lyudmila Goloubeva, a pianist forced to work for the KGB. A romance blossoms between them but neither can be sure what is an expression of their true feelings, and what is the fruit of political shenanigans…

Note from the artistic direction
A French original creation with a large budget, produced by Amazon. Totems is a spy series in the most traditional sense. Sets, staging, costumes, it is a full immersion into the Cold War in which France, Russia and the USA face each other in a game of ruthless subterfuge.
