Dalton Trumbo is a talented screenwriter. However his active membership in the Communist Party draws the contempt of anti-Soviet entertainment-industry figures such as columnist Hedda Hopper and actor John Wayne. Trumbo is one of 10 screenwriters subpoenaed to testify before the United States Congress regarding alleged Communist propaganda in Hollywood films.  A prison term eventually finishes, but he remains blacklisted and his finances and family life become increasingly strained. He resorts to giving the screenplay for Roman Holiday to his friend Ian McLellan Hunter, to take credit and a share of the money, and eventually the Academy Award for Best Story.
