A conniving mother seeks to enter the world of politics by encouraging her boorish son to marry a senator's daughter. Eleanor Dingle (Veronica Cartwright) knows that politicians wield power, and she's desperate to break into the game. If she could just convince her son Barry (Barry Shurchin) to court Ethel Shivers (Nicole Sullivan), the homely daughter of a rising senator, then her road to the White House would be all but paved. But little does Eleanor realize that her longtime nemesis Derek (Erik Palladino) has already dispatched his own two sons on precisely the same mission, and it isn't long before the whole ruse blows up in her face.
