Republican Russell Kramer and Democrat Matt Douglas, two former U.S. Presidents, have hated each other for decades. Their animosity only increases when they share Air Force One en route to a funeral. But a when the current chief executive orchestrates a scandal against Kramer, assassination attempts are aimed at BOTH men. To save their lives, the pair embark on a cross-country odyssey -- together -- to Ohio, where evidence of Kramer's innocence is located. During their trek, the hate-mates bicker (often in scatological terms) to no end. But along the way they also see the "real" America, that escaped their notice while they were in office. As a result, both men learn a little about each other, about themselves and about the country they once served.
