Synopsis
John Thomas is an insurance salesman in his 50's who suffers from serious health issues. Motivated by a misguided obsession with getting Barack Obama elected, John takes on an overwhelming involvement in the Presidential campaign. While John becomes obsessed with the ideals of change that Obama represents for Americans, he has in turn neglected to create positive change in his own life, particularly with regard to his health and family relationships. John hides his health problems from his wife, creating a strain on their marriage. When Molly discovers that John has been hiding his health scares from her, she urges him to improve his bad habits. John works to get back on the right path with his health and family as Obama soars to success in the campaign.
