In 1988, American Senator from the Democratic Party Gary Hart´s presidential campaign seems to be going perfect, and he is considered the front runner. However, everything is going to explote when it is published her scandalous love affair. Hugh Jackman and Courtney Ford play the main roles in a cast where we can also find Oscar winner JK Simmons and Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga. Based in the book by the journalist Matt Bai, the film makes the new comeback of the film director Jason Reitman, only one year after the release of the dramatic comedy 'Tully', with Charlize Theron playing the most important role. The son of Ivan Reitman is also in charge of the production of the movie and co-write the movie.
