An unpopular U.S. President manages to get a nuclear disarmament treaty through the Senate, but finds that the nation is turning against him. Jiggs Casey, a Marine Colonel, finds evidence that General Scott, the wildly popular head of the Joint Chiefs and certain Presidential Candidate in 2 years is not planning to wait. Casey goes to the president with the information and a web of intrigue begins with each side unsure of who can be trusted.

La firma de un tratado antinuclear con los soviéticos agita las calmadas aguas de Washington, enfureciendo a los grupos conservadores y la élite militar. La democracia más antigua de mundo puede estar en peligro de extinción.

En 1980, les présidents des Etats-Unis et de l'URSS décident la fin de la guerre froide, mais un général et le lobby de l'armement tentent de monter un coup d'Etat.
