December 1971: Nixon was the President, Elvis was the King.
The famous White House meeting between RICHARD NIXON and ELVIS PRESLEY is only the official version of an incredible, never-revealed adventure.
Nixon meets with Elvis briefly in the Oval Office and presents the singer with an honorary federal law enforcement badge. Elvis is disappointed–he wants to serve his country, not collect honorary titles. Nixon, anxious to end the awkward moment, asks Elvis to look into the unexplained absence of a White House cook. Elvis eagerly takes on the assignment, finds the missing cook, and uncovers a plot to steal a top secret tape from the White House.
Elvis reports back to Nixon, who finds the tape in question already missing. The revelation of the tape could ruin the Nixon presidency, and clearly it’s an inside job. Nixon must retrieve the tape, but there is no one in the government he can trust.
Elvis immediately volunteers–he already knows about the tape, and he’s only too eager to help. But Nixon can’t trust him to bring back the tape by himself, so the President and the King determine to be partners for one night in a clandestine operation to retrieve the tape.
In disguise and hopelessly out of their depth, these two highly insulated individuals take to the streets of Washington, D. C., on an undercover mission which quickly proves more difficult and dangerous than they ever imagined. When they lose their car, their money, their clothes and their enthusiasm for the mission, they seek help from a teenage runaway girl, DARLEEN, who takes pity on them, not realizing who they are.
As Darleen helps them in their quest, Nixon and Elvis discover skills, resources and a commitment to each other they never expected. Confronted with a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of government, Nixon and Elvis realize they are the only ones who can stop it. With a climactic boat chase on the Potomac ending in a deadly showdown at the Jefferson Memorial, and a surprise ending that shocks everyone involved, One Night With You is a wild comedy of political intrigue in the form of a buddy picture with two of the unlikeliest buddies ever thrown together.
