In the early 1970s, U.S. strategic analyst and anti-war activist Daniel Ellsberg leaks classified documents pertaining to the real nature and extent of America's involvement in the Vietnam War to several leading newspapers. The publication of these documents, known as The Pentagon Papers, creates a furore and triggers an unprecedented battle between journalists and the government. At the forefront of this crusade against political hypocrisy are The Washington Post's first female publisher Kay Graham and its firebrand editor Ben Bradlee, and they must risk their careers and personal freedom to bring the truth to light and uphold the spirit of fearless journalism.
