Beecher White is a young archivist who works with the most important documents of the US government. When Clementine Kaye, his first childhood crush, shows up at the Archives, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the President privately reviews classified documents. It's also where Beecher and Clementine accidentally find a priceless artefact - a 200-year-old dictionary that once belonged to George Washington - hidden inside a desk chair. Eager to discover why the President is hiding this national treasure, the two find themselves entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder that will reveal the most well kept secret of the US Presidency.
