Synopsis
Set in the future year of 1998, the United States is in crisis. The country has run out of oil, and people are living in their useless cars, using jogging and bicycling are their main forms of transportation. The federal government is near backruptcy and about to be foreclosed on by a cartel of Native Americans. The President and a consultant decide that their only hope is to hold a telethon to raise the money to save the country.
