The Front plot

"America's most unlikely hero."

1950. Hollywood is gripped by McCarthy's anti-communist witch-hunt. Howard Prince is a cashier in a timeless diner and a part-time bookmaker and full-time loser. One day, the writer Alfred Miller, offending by the communist fighters, offers him 10% of his wages on the condition that Prince lend him his name for his latest television screenplay. Howard accepts Miller's proposal and in no time he is the front man for a whole bunch of writers. He quickly makes a career as one of the most promising literary talents, but soon his fame turns against him and he is also accused of communist sympathies.
