Synopsis

One wants to protect America from the Red peril, the other wants to entertain it and denounce its injustices.

Convinced that Charlie Chaplin was in Moscow's pay, J. Edgar Hoover, the FBI's big boss, kept spying on him for 30 years.

Cold war and low blows were natural parts of this merciless hunt, a dive into the troubled waters of a paranoid America.
