An over-weight single-mother, high-school drop-out African-American is the US presidential candidate of a small party founded by a white Jewish unemployed financial analyst. With a red-haired dwarf, HIV positive, running for vice, they form a team who manages to create the unthinkable in order to stretch their micro-budget campaign. They believe in direct democracy and if elected want the people to decide directly the budget and the main issues of the country. As the two front runners are immersed in negative campaigning, they try to capitalize on the protest vote to reach the White House.
