Frank Williams and Lincoln Jones are friends who played together in a local Soul band in the Seventies that specialized in music by the group WAR. After their music teacher/ business manger gets killed by police, the friends go separate ways. Williams becomes a Secret Service agent and Jones becomes a Congressman.

Williams takes a bullet and saves a President's life from a skinhead assassin. Soon, Williams's humor-filled outspokenness helps him become a political celebrity. He is drafted to become the Presidential nominee for the Independent Party. Amid scandals in the two main parties, Williams is elected and makes his buddy, Congressman Jones, the Vice President. During the inauguration, Williams is shot at, but still delivers the speech.

The egotistical, right-wing, Speaker of the House hates both Williams and Jones. He plots to destroy them and take over the presidency. He secretly backs the Aryan Nation who also wants to destroy Williams and Jones.

Williams and Jones have great wives who help them try to make things better in the country, especially with racial issues, including reparations. They are loved by the populace.

Williams is assassinated while on vacation and the evil Speaker of the House tries to get murder charges and impeachment proceedings brought against Jones. Can the nation's second Black President hold the country together despite his problems and find a way to clear his name?
