Videos and DVDs
The US President has been caught in a major scandal two weeks before the elections and it is up to White House advisor Ronnie Brean (Robert De Niro) to save his political career. So Breen hires Hollywood producer Stan Moss (Dustin Hoffman) to help divert the country's attention away from the presidential scandal. They come up with a plan to fake a war, complete with photogenic actresses playing vote-winning refugees and rock stars commissioned to record stirring anthems for freedom. The President seems set for re-election on a wave of patriotic fervour, but a Senator is closing in on the truth about the 'phoney war'.
