Journalist Matty Roth has been working and living in the DMZ long enough to have become influential both in the DMZ and in the world outside. In this latest issue, a cease-fire is issued so that an election can get underway. Matty is putting his faith in the Delgado Nation, supported by the vast majority of those living in the DMZ. Unfortunately, the powers that be are not too keen on seeing Delgado coming into power and efforts are made to silence both the candidate and elections. Enter Matty’s mother as Delgado’s campaign manager, much to Matty’s surprise and chagrin. She appears to be completely out of her element in the DMZ, but proves herself to be an exceedingly effective campaign manager.
