Hugh Jackman stars in the true story of Gary Hart, a charismatic senator who decides to run for the 1988 Democratic Presidential nomination. Capturing the imagination of young voters, Hart is widely considered the overwhelming front runner for the position. But when he naively invites the media to scrutinise his personal life, his secrets come to light, endangering both his career and his marriage.
