Based on actual events (how loosely is anyone’s guess), Jim Fingal is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy — an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned by Emily Penrose to fact check D’Agata’s essay, the two come head to head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts versus truth.
