The CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) arrives in Iraq at the information that a captured American soldier was "turned around" by terrorists. Ten months later, Carrie, now working at the Langley Antiterrorist Center, is alighted to learn that the eight-year-old missing Marine, Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), has been released from a special unit while storming a terrorist hiding place. While Brody is celebrated on his return to his homeland as a war hero, Carrie suspects in him the alleged defector.
