Plot

United States of America, 2012: Alaskan Governator Sierra “Maverick” Nalin (Lisa Lockheeed) becomes elected as U.S. president. Fanatic Catholic laws take over a once democratic country: Abortion is made illegal, premarital sex or adultery is punished with good ol’ stoning, and Sunday church becomes a patriotic requirement. Due to the fact that moose, and animal hunting in general, became highly popular, paramilitary rifle organizations have taken over the role of police officers. The oil lobby gains enormous power, and environmental organizations are forced to shut down in order to make place for new oil projects all over the country.
A third of new born babies are the result of unwanted pregnancies because abortions are now against the law. Orphanages and foster homes get so flooded with infants that they have to transfer children to Canada and Mexico.
A world at edge. God pissed. A hero needed.

Roger Grooms (George Ferris), a university student pothead who works part-time as a nurse in a sleepy retirement village named “Endingville” in Wisconsin, feels his world is untouched by the new political changes. It isnโ€™t until chubby Heather (Michaela Moore), his friend with benefits for times when he gets no other girls, showed him a positive pregnancy test.
The next day an environmentalist demonstration marshes through Rogers workplace and unknowingly crashes into a rifle association squadron which is there for the same reason: Winning over the elderly people for their cause. A brutal fight starts amidst the elderly Endingville retirees, the environmentalists and the rifle association. Roger meets one of the environmentalist leaders, Jack Person (Billy Bob Thompson).

Jack introduces him to the underground atheist anti-Nalin-policy organization “MILF Hunters”.
Deeply involved in the MILF hunting mission, Roger becomes dedicated to change the new legislation by altering its religious foundation – and there is only one place on Earth where he can do that: The Vatican.
Unfortunately, President Nalin happens to be there too…
