Résumé: Comédie. Steve Guibord s'efforce de régler une crise entre des autochtones et des camionneurs qui ont à tour de rôle érigé des barrages sur les routes de son vaste comté du nord du Québec. Au même moment, le député fédéral indépendant apprend que, en raison de l'absence prolongée d'une députée conservatrice, c'est son vote qui déterminera si le Canada entrera ou non en guerre. Évitant de prendre clairement position, pour ne pas heurter sa fille pacifiste ni son épouse en faveur d'un engagement militaire, l'ex-hockeyeur écoute son jeune stagiaire haïtien, l'idéaliste et lettré Souverain, qui lui conseille d'organiser, dans un exercice de démocratie directe, des consultations publiques dans les trois agglomérations principales de son comté. Les choses se compliquent lorsque le premier ministre conservateur offre à Guibord un ministère en échange de son vote et que différents groupes de pression s'invitent dans le débat.
