A captivating tale of organized crime in the White House, Unscrupulous is a shocking 1920's-era thriller about President Warren Harding.
Unambitious and undistinguished, Warren is thrust into the spotlight after his neurotic wife Florence visits a fortune-teller who predicts his ascent to the White House. Despite hoping to lose gracefully, he unexpectedly wins the nomination though a corrupt bargain with rich oil barons and lands the highest office of the land. Once in the White House however, the new chief executive finds himself in way over his head, not least because he has a dark past that threatens to catch up with him.
Warren tacitly allows the Federal Government to degrade into a profiteering venture, where flagrant bribery, graft and money laundering occur systematically. Unable to confront his so-called friends in his cabinet, Warren becomes an accomplice in some of the largest government heists in U.S. history.
