Stephen Meyers is an idealistic man working on a political party's campaign for the upcoming American election. On the side of Mike Morris, he is very dedicated and confident that his side, the Democratic Party, will bring home the bacon. However, when a rival campaign leader, Tom Duffy, gives him a call, he begins to realise what a dirty game politics is.
After a meeting with Tom Duffy, Stephen is told he is working with the wrong man and that he wants him on his side. Meyers campaign manager, Paul Zara, issues a speech to Meyers requesting loyalty, saying without it you're nothing. However, Meyers tells Zara of his meeting with Duffy and gets kicked out of the campaign.
This leads him to go to Duffy and demand a place working for him, but Duffy knows Meyers is seeking revenge which would make him unreliable, so he is unsure whether to take him on or not. This leads him to taking matters into his own hands.
'The Ides of March' is a film based on the 2008 play 'Farragut North' by Beau Willimon.
