Synopsis / Plot
In the film, which is based on a true story, Penn plays Sam Bicke, a disillusioned "everyman" who, in 1974, was driven to plot the assassination of the 37th President of the United States. Despite the fact that his marriage is breaking up and that he is trapped in a sales job he finds demeaning, Sam tries desperately to succeed both at home and in the workplace; all he wants is to win his family back and to start a business of his own. However, in a society worn down by political corruption and the Vietnam War, there is not much room left for dreamers. Sam's world unravels against the backdrop of the Watergate scandal, which exposes culpability at the highest levels of society. With images of Nixon – "the greatest salesman of them all" – flooding the airwaves, Sam believes he has found the person responsible for his, and America's, problems and makes his appointment with destiny.
