Documentary about crossword competition created by Will Shortz (of the New York Times and N.P.R.), alternates between the finalists ("average" folks with an extraordinary ability to do cross-word puzzles very quickly and very well) and "famous" people who love cross-words.

The famous folks include former president Bill Clinton, film-maker Ken Burns, N.Y. Times editor Daniel Okrent and Daily Show host Jon Stewart.

The central conceit is the Annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament held every year in Stamford, Connecticut, and the denoument of the film is the final round and the crowning of the champion puzzle solver.
