Wag the Dog

Two weeks prior to reelection, the United States president lands in the middle of a sex scandal. In need of outside help to quell the situation, presidential adviser Winifred Ames enlists the expertise of spin doctor Conrad Brean, who decides a distraction is the best course of action. Brean approaches Hollywood producer Stanley Motss to help him fabricate a war in Albania -- and once underway, the duo has the media entirely focused on the war.
