Synopsis

Newly installed Secretary of State Robert Leffingwell (Henry Fonda) must be approved by the US Senate before his appointment can be confirmed. Senator Brigham Anderson (Don Murray) is made chairman of the sub-committee responsible for assessing Leffingwell's worth, and becomes a prime target for the attentions of opposition and supporters alike. The darker side of politics hidden beneath the façade of American democracy is revealed as an unscrupulous colleague resorts to blackmail to secure Anderson's vote.
