After finishing second to Walter Mondale in the 1984 Democratic Party presidential primaries, former Senator Gary Hart is now the widely accepted frontrunner in the 1988 Democratic Party presidential primaries. Leading up to the formal launch of his campaign in April 1987, some of Gary’s campaign staff are concerned he won’t open up about himself (letting the public “get to know him”), instead focusing on ideas and policy. Meanwhile, at The Washington Post, editors and journalists discuss whether the paper should report on Hart’s marital problems and rumoured promiscuity. After the first week of campaigning, Gary joins his friend Billy Broadhurst for a yacht cruise from Miami to Bimini on the Monkey Business, where he meets Donna Rice, a young woman. Days later at an array of pay-phones in an airport, two reporters — A.J. Parker of the Post and Tom Fiedler of the Miami Herald — overhear Gary’s end of a conversation, presumably with Rice.

On the campaign plane, Gary gets to know A.J., offering paternal advice and giving the young reporter a Tolstoy novel to learn about the Soviets. Later in Iowa, A.J. offends Gary during an interview by asking whether he has “a traditional marriage”. Gary responds: “You want to know what I’m doing in my spare time, A.J., is that it? Follow me around, put a tail on me. You’d be very bored.” Meanwhile in Miami, Tom Fiedler has received an anonymous call from a young woman alleging that Hart “is having an affair with a friend of mine”. Fiedler dismisses the call at first, but tracks two women on a flight to Washington D.C. and stakes out Hart’s townhouse, seeing Hart go out and come back with Rice.
