Washington, début des années 2000. Jack Abramoff, lobbyiste républicain ambitieux, très religieux et doté d'un ego surdimensionné, compte parmi ses clients des politiciens influents et de riches hommes d'affaires. Avec l'aide d'un assistant peu scrupuleux, et la complicité de plusieurs acteurs de la scène politique, ce père de famille juif, qui émaille ses propos de citations tirées de films célèbres, multiplie les transactions douteuses auprès de gangsters et d'autochtones propriétaires de casinos. Bientôt, ses fraudes, mensonges et stratagèmes piquent la curiosité de ses ennemis. Ainsi, alors qu'Abramoff rêve de créer une école privée prestigieuse ainsi qu'une fondation à son nom, l'étau se resserre sur lui. Au point où les médias le baptisent Casino Jack. [(c) Médiafilm]
