Acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt must battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel.

In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt (Rachel Weisz) and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. This is a movie about what ensued when Lipstadt and her publisher, Penguin Books, refused to settle out of court.

Settlement was a course of action that would have revolted the feisty Lipstadt but which many counselled because it would have deprived Irving (Timothy Spall) of a platform from which to expound his noxious theories. Celebrity solicitor Anthony Julius (Andrew Scott) was determined that Lipstadt would win in a trial that would still somehow manage to deny Irving the public hearing he so craved. Also stars Tom Wilkinson, Caren Pistorius, Jack Lowden and Harriet Walter.
