Max Flatow is a trouble maker who uses explosives as his way of rebelling against those around him. He is bored with his antics and wants the stakes to go much higher. He decides to leave home and in seven years, comes back as a completely new persona. He is fantastic as an entertainer and the young crowds love him. The political powers want to use him in their election campaign, but they can't imagine what they have gotten themselves and the rest of the country into.
