Dramatization of the events of the 2008 Presidential election follows Republican nominee John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate and the ensuing effect it has on his ticket.

Based on the 2010 non-fiction political book of the same name, Game Change chronicles Arizona senator John McCain's selection of then-Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate in the 2008 Presidential election, depicting how a pick designed to turn the tables on the front-running Democratic Party's White House bid ended up becoming a living nightmare for an ultimately-unsuccessful campaign.
