When the Vice President of the United States suddenly dies, Senator Laine Hanson (Joan Allen) is chosen by the President (Jeff Bridges) to be the first woman to hold the office. The selection however meets with strong opposition from members of both parties, in particular a powerful political adversary Senator Shelly Runyon (Gary Oldman) who orchestrates a dirty-tricks campaign, which dredges up the apparent sexual misgivings of her past. Her confirmation hearings set off a firestorm of controversy as shocking secrets from Hanson's past are revealed, threatening her personal life as well as her political future. Laine Hanson has what it takes to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. Now she must prove she has the stomach for what it takes to get the job.
