In the early 1940s, Charles Foster Kane dies in his mansion, Xanadu, speaking in a last breath “rosebud” (pink button) and leaving in her hands a snow globe. This last word enigmatic arouses the curiosity of the press. The reporter Thompson is in charge of solving the mystery and goes to meet all those who have experienced it. These meetings at present in which one immerses himself in his memories are accompanied at each time of flashbacks that shed a little more light on his life.

While young, he had to leave his mother, who was by chance the heir of a gold mine, to be cared for by a financier in the perspective of his fortune to come. Become a great magnate of the press, he married the niece of the president of the United States and hopes to make a political career, a career that ends when we learn that he cheats on his wife with Susan, a pseudo-opera singer. His wife asked for divorce, and Kane wife while Susan, who separates from him afterwards. Kane eventually dies alone in his huge mansion unfinished.

Each person who has worked, like Thatcher, Mr. Bernstein, Jedediah Leland, Susan Alexander Kane, and his butler, has a specific perception of the character, often very different from that of the other : stories, although intertwined, are not, therefore, that shed light on some aspects of one-time Charles Foster Kane.
