Desert One re-examines the story of President Carter’s dramatic attempt to rescue Americans taken hostage by Iranian revolutionaries in 1979. Drawing upon never-before-heard audio tapes from inside the White House, as well as new interviews with hostages, rescuers, Iranians and even President Carter, whose 1980 election loss to Ronald Reagan was greatly influenced by this decisive chapter of history, the film plays like a thriller.
