The Spy Who Knew Me is A.B.L.E.’s second film, featuring an ensemble cast of 20 actors with Down syndrome. Actors collaborated with a professional film crew and teaching artists to create this unique spy movie.A riff on the classic spy-adventure genre epitomized by James Bond, The Spy Who Knew Me follows super spy Tabitha Link and the ladies of the all-female agency U.N.I.T.E. After receiving an anonymous tip, Tabitha winds up at the scene of a jewelry heist where she sees a familiar face from her past. She and her fellow spies must race to find the connections between a series of thefts, a top-secret military experiment, and several missing operatives before they lose themselves completely to the evil organization E.C.H.O.
