The President is the story of a dictator of an imaginary country in the Caucasus, who is forced to escape following a coup d'état, and begins a journey to discover his country in the company of his five-year-old grandson. The two travel across the lands that the President once governed. Now, disguised as a street musician to avoid being recognized, the former dictator comes into contact with his people, which he comes to know from a different point of view.

When the president allows his grandson to command that the lights in neighborhoods surrounding their headquarters be deactivated at night time, not only do lights wired to the power grid go dark but also the headlights of motor vehicles which continue moving along as though their operators are not phased in the slightest by reduced visibility. Only the discharge of an electromagnetic pulse could potentially have such an effect, yet no reference is made such a methodology. See more
