Synopsis

Gary Hart, former Senator of Colorado, turns into the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1987. Hart's intelligence, air of mystery and idealism makes him famous with younger voters, leaving him with a reputedly clear path to the White House. All that comes crashing down when allegations of an extramarital affair surface within the media, forcing the candidate to deal with a scandal that threatens to derail his campaign and private existence.
