"En 1947, Dalton Trumbo fait partie des scénaristes respectés à Hollywood : son talent et sa rapidité en font un collaborateur recherché. Mais, c'est à cette époque que le sénateur Joseph McCarthy et le Comité des activités antiaméricaines se lancent à la poursuite des artistes hollywoodiens liés de près ou de loin au parti communiste. Dalton Trumbo et certains de ses amis font ou ont fait partie de ses sympathisants. Si certains se demandent s'il faut collaborer avec McCarthy, Trumbo, fervent supporteur de la liberté d'expression, s'y refuse catégoriquement. Ce qui pourrait mettre sa carrière en péril."
