Tom McLaughlin (Paul Gross), former Canadian Prime Minister, watches from the sidelines as a majority of Canadians vote for union with the United States of America. The Canadian flag comes down and the country is redrawn into six states. McLaughlin appears to take this development in stride, but we soon learn that he has concocted a plan to get revenge on those he sees as having stolen his country out from under him. Backed by the Big Three moneymen of Europe, McLaughlin runs as an independent for President with his ex-wife, Texas Governor Mary Miller (Martha Burns) as his running mate. Veteran British journalist Helen Madigan (Greta Scacchi) uncovers a plot to fix the votes in the U.S. and believing McLaughlin is an honest broker, she looks to him to expose the corruption in the current administration but instead reveals that he is the root. Also starring: Tom Skerritt, Saul Rubinek,
