A fast-paced political comedy from Michael Healey, the critically acclaimed author of The Drawer Boy and Proud, that examines the space between ideals and political reality during a monumental moment in Prime Minister Joe Clark's career.

It's December 1979 and Clark's minority Progressive Conservative government is under threat of dissolution before it has a chance to accomplish anything — even pass a budget. But Clark is young and idealistic, resolute on making his mark in office. When he steals a moment at his desk to make a crucial decision, his colleagues, including Brian Mulroney and Pierre Trudeau, take the opportunity to steer him in different directions.
