Spanning continents and time zones, FIASCO, based on the hit podcast, dives into one of the least understood of all political scandals and reveals the true scope of Iran Contra with ground-breaking interviews, rare archival footage and cinematic style.
In a desperate attempt to free American hostages being held in Lebanon, Reagan’s cabinet strikes an illegal weapons-for-hostages deal with an Iranian arms merchant. The proceeds are funnelled to pay for the Nicaraguan civil war.
