English Summary:

After the Watergate scandal of 1972 and his subsequent resignation in 1974, 400 million people worldwide watched Nixon leave the White House. Among them is British journalist David Frost, currently recording a talk show in Australia, who decides to interview Nixon.

Nixon's literary agent, Irving Lazar, believes the interview would be an opportunity for Nixon to salvage his reputation, and to make some money. Lazar demands $500,000, and ultimately gets $600,000 and Frost accepts.

After persuading his friend and producer John Birt that the interviews would be a success, Frost travels with Birt to California to meet with Nixon. On the plane to California, Frost flirts with a young woman called Caroline Cushing, and they begin a relationship.

Frost struggles to sell the interviews to American networks, and decides to finance the project with private money and syndicate the broadcast of the interviews. He hires two investigators — Bob Zelnick and James Reston Jr. — to help him prepare, along with Birt. Frost is not clear on what he wants from the interview, and Reston encourages him to aim for a confession from Nixon.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Miután elhagyni kényszerült hivatalát, Richard Nixon három éven át hallgatott. Ám 1977 nyarán a ravasz és hajthatatlan egykori főparancsnok belegyezett, hogy leül egy átfogó interjúra, és szembenéz a hivatalát és az annak végét jelentő Watergate botrányt érintő kérdésekkel. Nixon mindenkit meglepett, amikor Frostot választotta ki tévés gyóntatójaként, mert az volt a terve, hogy könnyedén túljár a fesztelen brit showman eszén, és így újra belopja magát az amerikaiak szívébe. Frost stábjának hasonló kételyei voltak főnökük rátermettségét illetően. Ám amint a kamerák beindultak, kezdetét vette az elmék párharca. Vajon Nixon kikerüli a kérdéseket, melyek a nemzet szégyenének állítják őt be? Vagy Frost szégyeníti meg kritikusait, és bátran számon kéri a felelősséget attól az embertől, aki az obstrukciós politikára építette karrierjét? Találkozójuk során mindkét férfi leleplezi bizonytalan pontjait, egóját és méltóságának tartalékait, és végül félreteszik a pózokat, és felfedik a kendőzetlen, megdöbbentő igazságot.
