Relates a particularly thorny period in Hollywood history, namely the 1950's government black-listing of many people in the industry for taking part in allegedly 'communist' activities. Film focuses on one well-established director who refuses to co-operate with the House Un-American Activities committee and admit to the charges pressed against him as well as providing names of others supposedly involved.
