Wasserman's gift for perceiving industry trends long before his rivals led to MCA's creation of Universal Pictures and Universal City. Wasserman was notoriously secretive, doing no interviews and leaving behind no written materials, so the film combines research, archival images, and new interviews of Hollywood insiders to tell a great American story of power, commerce, and deal making
