Movie Info

In this film, General James M. Scott, convinced that liberal President Jordan Lyman is soft on America's enemies, plots a military takeover of the United States. Every effort made by President Lyman to find concrete evidence of General Scott's scheme is scuttled by political protocol, human error, and accidental death.
