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.
