Jeffrey Wigand (Crowe) was a scientist employed by the Brown and Williamson tobacco firm. Soon after being fired, he came into contact with Lowell Bergman (Pacino), a producer for CBS’s “60 Minutes.” It was arranged for Wigand to be interviewed by Mike Wallace (Christopher Plummer) to expose the cigarette industry.
