A conservative radio talk show host and aspiring politician experiences an acute crisis of conscience after losing his memory, and experiencing life among the less fortunate in this thought provoking drama. Thomas Bach (Victor Browne) likes to think of himself as a straight-shooter. His right-wing radio show is a big hit among Minneapolis Tea Partiers, and recently he's announced a plan to retire from radio, at take a shot at a seat in the U.S. Senate. Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles to iron out the kinks in his campaign, however, Thomas becomes the victim of a violent assault that robs him of his memory. As a result, the wayward political hopeful forgets he's a diabetic, falling seriously ill as he seeks shelter in skid row. Over the course of the next week, Thomas becomes a true member of the homeless community, rediscovering the meaning of compassion as he receives help, and in turn helps others. Later, as Thomas' memory returns, he finds himself at a crucial crossroads: does he parlay his experience into a triumphant campaign story that's sure to win votes and launch a successful political career, or does he finally admit that he's been wrong all along, and use his newfound wisdom to enact genuine change?
