The man most associated with crossword puzzles is New York Times puzzle editor and NPR puzzle-master Will Shortz. Director/co-writer Patrick Creadon introduces us to this passionate hero, and to the inner workings of his brilliant and often hilarious contributors, revealing the process and allure of this uniquely American pastime. The odyssey leads to the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, an annual challenge founded by Shortz which is as much about community and camaraderie as it is about competition.
