Synopsis

In the run up to the US elections things are not looking good for the President. He is almost certain to lose and so, together with his vice-president, plots his own kidnapping in order to gain public sympathy and the vital votes needed to win a second term in office. But the vice-president has other ideas and wants the President not just kidnapped but killed, along with his aides, in order to escape with the ransom money. Things begin to go wrong when one of the kidnapping team is taken ill and a replacement is brought in - unbeknownst to the vice-president this replacement does not kill Amercian citizens and that includes the President!
