Forty years old gardener Chance is a simple and naive man, calmly taking care of his garden while living in a “tough” neighbourhood. He lives alone, never goes out, has never driven a car. His only entertainment is television. When his employer dies, he is forced out of his peacefulness. He’s hit by a car and the driver, Eve Rand, welcomes him in her house and takes care of him. Chance befriends Benjamin Rand, her husband, who is about to welcome the President of the United States. At the meeting, Chance’s interventions are understood as prophecies: he becomes a darling of the media and powerful.
