A slightly fictionalized account of the stormy relationship between former FBI Director James Comey and President Donald Trump. It resulted in the firing of Comey from his leadership role in 2017. The focus is on the motivations of Comey as he struggles with extremely difficult options that all seem to be equally bad. He juggles Trump's unprecedented demands for loyalty against fulfilling his mandate to be a nonpartisan leader of the nation's top crime-fighting organization. Comey's controversial decision to announce that Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton, was under investigation just 11 days before the election is dramatized.
