In the Watergate Building, lights go on and four burglars are caught in the act. That night triggered revelations that drove a U.S. President from office. Washington reporters Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) grabbed the story and stayed with it through doubts, denials, and discouragement. The entire President's Men is their story.
The film also explores a working newspaper, where the mission is to get the story - and to get it right.
