Incisive satire is aimed at the war posture of the United States of the future. This year's war is in Brazil where an American poison gas attack backfires. On the eve of an election, the President is worried about how to explain the presence of the gas in the U.S. peace arsenal. While a staunch old general, blinded and crippled by war, demonstrates by his stoicism the idiocy of outmoded codes and the cabinet concocts a cock and bull story for the people, the President's wife is murdered.
