A failed assassination attempt on the Kingdom of Albion's queen causes spies on all sides to be questioned on their loyalty to their respective alliances. Amid the increasing tensions, Ange le Carré, Dorothy, Charlotte, and Chise Toudou have returned with a new assignment: to collect an antique bookstore owner held captive at the kingdom's prison. However, this simple mission is soon followed by fear when Control assigns the team to investigate a suspected double agent within the royal family.

Ange and the other members of Team White Pigeon must face betrayal and bloodshed as they attempt to make contact with another spy while aware of only one thing: their codename, Bishop.

First of all, if you haven't watched the anime yet, do that before watching this or else you won't understand some important plot points in this movie.

Now, if you're reading this I'm assuming it's because you want to know if the movie is worth watching and the answer is, it depends.

Now since I don't know what you particularly liked/disliked from the anime I'll just tell you what I liked and disliked about the film.

Does it meaningfully build upon its unique Victorian era Cold War London setting?

The answer to all of these is "No". But it's still a pretty fun CGDCT show.

It's effectively the first two episodes of a hypothetical season ...
