Summary
A delicious tale of greed, corruption, and burning ambition. At its heart is Francis Urquhart, a black-hearted villain with a smiling face, who shares with the viewers his estranged humor and innermost thoughts to destroy each of his political rivals. One by one his opponents tumble, until at last there is just one wild card left in the pack
