Tenacious communications chief Malcolm Tucker is hurriedly called into action to minimize the damage created by British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster, after the minister claims that a US and British backed war is "unforeseeable". At the insistence of the Prime Minister, Foster heads for Washington accompanied by new aide Toby, while Director of Communications Judy papers the cracks back home. Foster soon finds himself embroiled in a tug of war between the pro- and anti-war factions, the latter spearheaded by US Assistant Secretary for Diplomacy Karen Clarke and US General Miller.
