Andrew Shepherd is approaching the end of his first term as President of the United States. He's a widower with a young daughter and has proved to be popular with the public.

His election seems assured. That is until he meets Sydney Ellen Wade, a paid political activist working for an environmental lobby group.

He's immediately smitten with her and after several amusing attempts, they finally manage to go on a date, which happens to be a state dinner.

His relationship with Wade opens the door for his prime political opponent, Senator Bob Rumson, to launch an attack on the President's character.
