FAIR Game stars Watts as Valerie Plame, a real-life undercover CIA officer whose career was destroyed and her marriage with Joseph Wilson, played Penn, strained to its limits when her covert status was exposed by a White House press leak.

Plame, whose CIA status is unknown to almost her entire circle of family and friends, is caught in the crossfire when her husband writes a scathing opinion piece for The New York Times.

A subsequent article in The Washington Post exposes Valerie and she is shunned by colleagues, who need to protect their own identities.

A gripping snapshot of the events leading up to the war in Iraq and the subsequent fallout for Plame, Wilson and their family.
