The US President and UK Prime Minister
fancy a war. But not everyone agrees that war is a good
thing. The US General Miller (James Gandolfini) doesn't
think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for
International Development, Simon Foster (Tom Hollander).
But, after Simon accidentally backs military action on TV,
he suddenly has a lot of friends in Washington , DC . If
Simon can get in with the right DC people, if his entourage
of one (Chris Addison) can sleep with the right intern (Anna
Chlumsky), and if they can both stop the Prime Minister's
chief spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi) rigging the
vote at the UN, they can halt the war. If they don't...
well, they can always fire their Director of Communications
Judy (Gina McKee), who they never liked anyway and who's
back home dealing with voters with blocked drains and a man
who's angry about a collapsing wall (Steve Coogan).
