It’s late June, 1972. Five men have just been arrested for breaking in to the DNC headquarters, located in the Watergate Hotel in Washington DC. The FBI has begun investigations, and find a link between the burglars and the Committee to Re-elect the President, an organization with ties to sitting President Richard Nixon. Meanwhile, the war in Vietnam is dragging on, and on the home front people are struggling with a new economic crisis, dubbed stagflation. Confidence in the White House is beginning to fade. The Nixon administration is tasked with running a country on the verge of crisis, while also trying to preserve their careers and freedom as the details of the Watergate investigation reveal a conspiracy at the heart of the American government.
