In the lead-up to the 2000 presidential election, George W. Bush picks Dick Cheney, the CEO of one of the world’s largest oil field service companies, to be his Republican running mate. When Bush wins the presidency, Cheney uses his newfound power to help reshape the country, and the world. Adam McKay (THE BIG SHORT) directs an all-star cast to re-tell the story of how a bureaucratic Washington insider quietly became the most powerful man in the world.
