The US presidential election, 1940. Suddenly, it was not Roosevelt who won (as happened in reality), but Charles Lindbergh.

Lindbergh is a popular person, the first who made a solitary transatlantic flight. He is a populist and xenophobe; he sympathizes with the Hitler regime and opposes the war with Germany.

The film revolves around the Levin Jewish family living in New Jersey. Through their eyes we see tectonic shifts in American society.
