Stalked by a hitman for a heinous crime of which he was acquitted, a church pastor suffers waking nightmares about a dysfunctional divine family, a grim reaper which bears a striking resemblance to Johnny Cash, four riderless horses and a looming apocalypse. Meanwhile, society is in turmoil. Federal laws have disarmed honest citizens while freeing convicted murderers. Runaway taxation has driven the everyday economy underground. Congressional assent to a United Nations treaty facilitates the deadliest terrorist attack since 9/11/01. As the Presidential election nears, an irresistible urge to be truthful seizes the incumbent and her Republican opponent. The incumbent’s revelation about systemic voter fraud triggers reforms which result in a landslide victory for the third-party underdog. Ironically, not a single voter remembers selecting the spoiler at the ballot box. Predator and prey finally meet at a funeral, but the ceremony is hijacked by General George Patton. After performing a slapstick resurrection and setting humanity straight on a few things, Patton solves the political mystery by explaining the evolutionary leap which has begun to expand human consciousness. The newly aware congregants proceed to reinvent the United States of America envisioned by its founders.
