Under threatening circumstances, psychologist Dr. Stanley Warlib and Uncle Sam are forced against their will into therapy. Sam has exhibited increasingly erratic behavior, alienating his international friends, withdrawing from vital agreements, amassing huge debt, spying on his family and invading a sovereign nation under orders from God on a messianic calling and mission to save civilization. The world, horrified by Sam's actions is powerless to stop him. At home, Sam's family supports his actions and exhibits traits indicative of severe personality disorders, which prevent them from taking appropriate action. Under impossible circumstances, Dr. Stanley Warlib attempts various interventions to help Sam to no avail. The personality disorders of Sam and his family are too intractable. Finally, in Sam's messianic mission to save civilization he tortures the very people he tries to save from a cruel dictator. Behind Sam's visions of grandiosity lies a more sinister and dangerous personality. Recovering from a near fatal gunshot wound, Dr. Warlib ponders whether Sam's family will recognize the deadly road that they are being led down and unseat Sam in an upcoming election or whether Sam will commit horrific acts in his own home playing on his family's fears ensuring his reelection.
