Synopsis

Mr. and Mrs. Walker live in suburban America with their young child. When they receive a letter from the President, explaining that their home has been chosen to be fitted with a defense missile, the couple is shocked. The sudden arrival of Captain Johnson, a government official, does nothing to ease their fears, especially when he detonates the missile accidentally. Fortunately, the missile is a dummy, but just who is the real dummy here?
