Synopsis

Documentary about Pentagon insider and leading Vietnam War strategist Daniel Ellsberg, who came to the conclusion in 1971 that the war was based on decades of lies by no fewer than five US presidents. Dubbed 'the most dangerous man in America' by Henry Kissinger, Ellsberg decided to leak some 7,000 pages of top-secret documents to The New York Times - a daring act of conscience that led directly to Watergate, President Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War.
