The Deal synopsis

In the early 1980s, Margret Thatcher's Conservative regime is in full effect. Gordon Brown (David Morrissey), a new recruit in Parliament, meets Tony Blair (Michael Sheen), another member, for the first time. They become friends as they simultaneously climb through the ranks of British government. But, when British Labour leader John Smith (Frank Kelly) suddenly dies, tension between the two friends rises, as both Brown and Blair want Smith's position -- and to run for prime minister.
