Wareing’s satirical essay evokes the disorientating effects of American political leadership in the late 20th century.
Wareing begins with handheld footage shot midway on a bridge, his camera lurching and unsettled. We see Wareing tapping himself on the head, as if to correct his thoughts.
Six simultaneous scenes appear within the one screen, including a man in a cowboy hat talking to camera, scenes from a domestic space, a low budget Western and a static shot of the bridge. A scrolling text describes advice to Nancy Reagan from an astrologer. The cowboy is instructed by an off-camera voice to say "The difference between a good guy and a bad guy... is written in the human heart".
Mid-way through the film the image cuts to a series of dramatic film noir scenes in New York City. Over the top Wareing describes the making of Jean-Luc Godard‘s film Pierrot le Fou.
