DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Thriller - This is a very talky fact-based drama based on the real-life case of Valerie Plame. Fans of serious drama and stars Naomi Watts and Sean Penn will be pleased. Subject matter and language make the film inappropriate for kids, who wouldn't be interested anyhow.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts), a covert officer in the CIA's counter-proliferation department, discovers that Iraq has no active nuclear weapons program, contrary to the belief of many in the U.S. government. Meanwhile, Valerie's husband Joe Wilson (Sean Penn), a former ambassador to Niger, is sent by the State Department to Africa to investigate rumors of the possible sale of enriched uranium to Iraq. After the White House ignores Joe's findings that no such deal took place, (along with at least two other reports that also confirmed the absence of any evidence of a uranium purchase) and declares war on Iraq, Joe writes a piece in The New York Times outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of controversy.

Soon after, Valerie's covert status is leaked to high-profile Washington journalists. Is it an unfortunate coincidence or a coordinated campaign to retaliate against her husband for his very public disagreement with the government? With her cover blown and her overseas contacts now left exposed and vulnerable, Valerie is pushed to the breaking point as her career and private life begin to implode. Friends become indignant, then distant. Valerie receives anonymous death threats and Joe's consulting business dries up as a result of the concerted smear campaign against them. After 18 years serving the government, Valerie—a mother, a wife and a field officer with an impeccable record—now struggles to save her reputation, her career and her marriage.
