Après les attentats du 11 septembre 2001, la CIA se lance dans la guerre contre le terrorisme en pratiquant notamment des interrogatoires brutaux voire sadiques sur les détenus arrêtés et emprisonnés. Membre importante du Parti démocrate, la sénatrice Dianne Feinstein charge l'un de ses hommes, Daniel J. Jones, de mener une enquête sur leurs méthodes douteuses et immorales, dissimulées au peuple américain. Son investigation explosive révèle leur technique d'interrogatoire renforcée protégée et adoubée par le gouvernement américain, qui donna leur soutien et leur accord à la CIA pour qu'elle torture les suspects afin de leur soutirer des informations capitales. Après plusieurs années de recherches prouvant l'existence de ces pratiques cruelles passées sous silence, Jones rédige un rapport d'environ 500 pages, commandé par la United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, mais sa publication s'avère plus compliquée que prévu. En effet, la Maison-Blanche et la CIA mettent tout en œuvre pour étouffer les révélations de son enquête.

Middle-aged couple Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia Schrebnick (Naomi Watts) have a shaky relationship while living in New York City. Josh is struggling on the post-production of his documentary film about leftist intellectual Ira Mandelstam (Peter Yarrow). His previous documentary about military-industrial complex titled The Power Elite was based on C. Wright Mills's sociological theory. Both Josh and Cornelia are struggling to try to have children, although Cornelia is reluctant due to her miscarrying the past two pregnancies. After finishing a lecture at the college where he works, Josh is approached by Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby Massey (Amanda Seyfried), a young couple who invite him and Cornelia out to dinner, the former claiming to be a fan of both his works and the works of his accomplished documentary filmmaker father-in-law, Leslie Breitbart (Charles Grodin). Josh is immediately awestruck by Jamie and Darby's non-conservative outlook on life, and he and Cornelia begin spending more time with them and indulging in their activities.

The film opens on a black screen, with white letters describing the date and place, as we hear radio chatter about a "suspicious vehicle" followed by the sound of an explosion and gunfire. We then cut to see two Marines driving, wearing dress blue uniforms, to an unmarked house in the middle of the night and knocking on the door. Finally we cut to Lt. Colonel Michael Strobl (played by Kevin Bacon) searching on his computer the casualty report for the Middle East. After a couple clips of Michael running through the woods, service members' coffins getting put into an airplane, and some driving. We find the Lt. Col. at work giving a presentation to several other Marines. Then the Lt. Col. makes his way home with his family for a short while, then the camera cuts to five Marines in woodland MarPat camouflage taking US Flag draped coffins off of an airplane in the rain. After a short clip of the Lt. Col. eating dinner with his family, we find him looking at the casualty report yet again but this time he writes down some information. The movie then cuts to him in an interview with a higher ranking Marine and he asks to escort a Marine named PFC (Private First Class) Chance Phelps. He says it is because the PFC is from his hometown, then we see him discuss his choice with his wife. After he explains that he is doing this only because the PFC is from his hometown and has no other meaning, the film cuts to several people doing medical procedures on a dead body which one can assume to be PFC Phelps. After the morticians are shown, the film then cuts to the Lt. Col. leaving and telling his wife goodbye.
