Synopsis / Plot
Henry, the idealistic grandson of a civil rights leader, joins the campaign of presidential hopeful Jack Stanton, the progressive and libidenous governor of a southern state. Also on the team are Richard, a redneck campaign strategist, and Libby, a gay, gun-toting trouble shooter. Stanton's roller coaster, scandal-ridden, campaign opens Henry's eyes to the harsh realities that are all a part of being a politician seeking office in late 20th century America.
