Full Synopsis

Joining Fox News, naïve new executive Kayla Pospisil is excited to join the industry as part of such a lucrative brand. Famed for its explosive storytelling and extraordinary viewership, Fox is the place to be.

Headed up by CEO Roger Ailes, the titan has expansive power beyond the channel and complete control within the network. In other words, he’s untouchable…

However, the atmosphere turns hostile when an experienced and respected Fox journalist, Gretchen Carlson, makes a stand against the media mogul, claiming that sexual assault is rife within the network.

Meanwhile, Fox anchor Megyn Kelly is also fighting her own battle in the public eye, this time against the Trump presidential campaign, endorsed by Ailes.

As scandal takes over, those at Fox are forced to take sides. With many supporting the accused, the strength of those already in the spotlight encourages others to come out with similar stories.

Despite Ailes’ unending influence across the board, it might just be enough to take him down, proving that even a whisper can end in a bombshell.
