Thomas Bach, a popular right-wing radio talk-show host is on top of his game. When he is handpicked to run for the U.S. Senate, he flies to Los Angeles to clean up some damaging indiscretions. The morning afterwards, he wakes up without his memory, unaware that he is diabetic. A victim of an attack, he now wanders skid row, blending in with the homeless population, and without medication. As he experiences the violence, hardship, courage and humanity of the homeless community, a previously unseen compassionate man emerges. A week later, he regains his memory and quickly returns home. Although a great story for his campaign, his experiences now conflict with his political rhetoric. Thomas must face a choice between career and conscience.
