Bill is the current head of America who frequently cheats on his first lady. Dave is a sweet-natured man just trying to get by as a Temp Agency operator.

But when a stroke puts Bill into a coma, Dave is stuck as the U.S. leader. With an accidental chance to make the country a better place, he does just that.
