What Is the Story of I Forgive You, Ronald Reagan?
In the early 1980s, air traffic controller Ray Deluso is laid off after Ronald Reagan hands down a controversial decision to fire striking airline workers. Twenty years later, Ray is still stricken with pride, anger and obsession with the man who ruined his life—and with his former friend who abandoned him on the strike line. Can Ray find forgiveness with his put-upon wife, his actress daughter and the president whom he can’t seem to forget?
