The true story of how novelist Clifford Irving successfully sold his entirely made-up biography of tycoon Howard Hughes for millions of dollars.
In truth not authorised at all, but containing facts Irving unscrupulously went to great lengths to acquire, it still goes to publication. Obsessed by the project, and Hughes, Irving has to bravely call everybody's bluff several times in order to reach his bounty - the cheque.
