Wag the Dog. Two weeks prior to reelection, the United States president lands in the middle of a sex
scandal. In need of outside help to quell the situation, presidential adviser Winifred Ames (Anne Heche)
enlists the expertise of spin doctor Conrad Brean (Robert De Niro), who decides a distraction is the best
course of action. Brean approaches Hollywood producer Stanley Motss (Dustin Hoffman) to help him
fabricate a war in Albania — and once underway, the duo has the media entirely focused on the war.
