"D.C." takes place after a civil revolt and the only branch of the American government left is the legislative. General Julian Kascier and General Marc Anthony are overseas dealing with terrorists. Meanwhile, Senator Cato and his allies are trying to curry favor with the people and General Pompey Magnius against the war. But when Officer Lucas Vorenus and Private Titus Pullo are thrown into the mix, everybody needs to adapt their plans if they want to win.
"D.C." was inspired by HBO's television series "Rome". Both "Rome" and "D.C." deal with Julius Caesar's ascent to power.
