In 1950s America, Senator Joseph McCarthy was unjustly persecuting people (including many within the film industry) who he believed were Communists. The film is based on the true story of the CBS news team who, led by the respected presenter Edward R Murrow, took on McCarthy and attempted to show the people of America what was really going on.
