At a luxury Florida resort, health food lobbyists choose their new president at their annual convention. The leading candidates are 83-year-old abstinence proponent Esther Brill (Lauren Bacall), White House aide Gloria Burbank (Carol Burnett) -- whose ex-husband (James Garner) is running Brill's campaign -- and earnest Isabella Garnell (Glenda Jackson). As the conference progresses, underhanded tricks, backroom corruption and bizarre personal behavior threaten to undermine the entire affair.
