An American comedy-drama

This comedy cleverly blends fact and fiction to reveal the untold story behind the meeting between Elvis Presley, King of Rock ‘n Roll, and President Richard Nixon, that resulted in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.

On December 21, 1970 Elvis Presley visited the Oval Office to ask to be made a Drug Enforcement Agent requesting to see President Nixon. Nobody but Elvis and Nixon were privy to the details of what the two men talked about behind closed doors, which of course makes their meeting a rich subject for comedy and drama.
