The film is based on a book written by Marie Rothenberg and Mel White and relates the true story of David, a child who was burned over 90 percent of his body by his father. The parents were estranged and the non-custodial father, Charles Rothenberg, fled with David in tow to California, but quickly decided that he could not care for David alone. However, rather than return David to his mother's care, the elder Rothenberg used kerosene to set fire to his son while the boy slept in a hotel room. The movie shows how his mother, Marie Rothenberg, coped with the crisis, and the courage and determination of David.

As in earlier film versions of Leiber's story such as Weird Woman (1944) and Night of the Eagle (1962), the story is set around a college campus where rivalries for various chairmanships of faculties take place. While the script's touch is notably lighter than in earlier film versions, verging on comedic in places, the story is basically the same.

Le réseau UBS est racheté par le conglomérat CCA. Franck Hackett décide alors de renvoyer Howard Beale, présentateur du journal télévisé depuis 20 ans et en perte d'audimat, malgré les protestations de Max Schumacher, rédacteur en chef. Lors de ses dernières émissions, Beale devient de plus en plus offensant, menaçant de se suicider et jurant en direct à la télévision. Flairant le bon coup médiatique, Diana Christensen, directrice des programmes, donne carte blanche à Beale. Lorsque Beale hurle à des millions de téléspectateurs de se rebeller contre le système, c'est le carton d'audience. Hackett décide alors de renvoyer Schumacher et donne les pleins pouvoirs à Christensen. Elle transforme alors l'émission de Beale en une idiotie commerciale où le présentateur, devenu totalement fou, crie des inepties populistes au public. Dans le même temps, elle crée une série documentaire tapageur sur un groupe terroriste communiste. En parallèle, Schumacher quitte femme et enfants pour vivre avec Christensen.
