In the 2003 special election, Gov. Gray Davis faces replacement in California's big chair by movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger. As this documentary shows, the obstacles facing the erstwhile "Terminator" are both serious and colorful: allegations of poor behavior with women, and opponents including a porn star and actor Gary Coleman. The film portrays the election as a movie-worthy spectacle, but also offers proof that sometimes even the most elaborate art can't hold a candle to real life.
