Our nation's capitol. Two brothers. Leo a Capitol Hill speechwriter struggling to stay employed, and Francis a psychiatric outpatient convinced that he is the reincarnation of the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Leo's employer, a mediocre congressman, looks headed for defeat in the upcoming election. But when Francis secretly takes over the speech writing, the congressman starts sounding heroic, even inspiring. A seriously comic look at love and strategy, in a city so desperately sane that madness may be the remedy.
