    Synopsis

    1971: America is embroiled in the Vietnam war, a dirty war based on lies and deceit. A president is abusing the power of his office, ignoring the will of the people, congress and the courts. He promises peace while planning a war without end.

    One man, at the center of power, armed with a safe full of secret documents, leaks the truth about the Vietnam War to the New York Times. He risks life in prison to end the war he helped plan.

    His act of conscience and desperation triggers a Constitutional crisis, Watergate, the only Presidential resignation in history and finally helps end the war. Henry Kissinger called Daniel Ellsberg, "the most dangerous man in America". And 3 decades later, he's still at it.
