Following the death of a publishing tycoon, Charles Foster Kane, journalist Jerry Thompson is assigned to investigate the past of this "larger than life" figure. Meeting all those who knew him and digging deeper and deeper into his secrets, Kane's hidden past is little by little revealed to us via flashbacks. Orson Welles signs here for the first time in cinema history, a very unique style, rapidly promoting CITIZEN KANE as one of the "best movies ever."
