1972. Following the death of fifty year FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover who the last three Presidents had considered firing, FBI outsider L. Patrick Gray is appointed Acting Director. Associate Director Mark Felt, a dedicated, loyal and meticulous employee of the Bureau for thirty years, and his wife Audrey, feel he being passed over for the job is a major snub, they who have sacrificed their own personal lives for the Bureau.

Just watched this biography, drama about the man who worked for the FBI for 31 years, and was the informer they called "deep throat' in the Watergate scandal, and downfall of a POTUS.
