When Maine Congressman Charlie Winship publicly refuses to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the opening of the morning session, he finds himself in the spotlight of a major media backlash and gaining increasing criticism from the public. Charlie’s sense of honor blinds him to the fact that he has real enemies. His own Chief of Staff, Jared, is in league with Laird Devereaux, a corrupt former congressman and lobbyist. Retreating to a small remote island in his district to deal with a fishing scandal growing into a small civil war, Charlie begins to regain some perspective after meeting its people and witnessing the challenges they have come together to struggle against. Through the example of the rugged and self-reliant constituents fighting to save their way of life, the Congressman once again begins to find purpose and faith in himself and his country.
