When a cruel African dictator is usurped by a conniving advisor with a body double, he must befriend a liberal activist in order to reclaim his position and ensure his country is not turned into a democracy and subsequently exploited by oil companies.

Cohen’s bag of tricks
is lighter, but he still has
some cards up his sleeve.
