Sorry, we don't have the rights to sell this movie in your country

What would happen if the American public got the leader it deserved? Peter Sellers plays an innocent and illiterate gardener who ends up the most influential man in Washington, D.C. - simply by Being There.

Gentle and slow-witted Chance tends a garden on a palatial estate and knows nothing of the outside world except what he sees watching television. Then a limousine hits him, and everything changes. Elevated to celebrity status by the limousine's powerful passenger, Eve Rand, Chance charms everyone, including the President of the United States.

Can his simple but wise gardening metaphors solve the country's complex problems? Chance helps peace grow and flourish in this comic, cautionary fable about the power of simplicity.
