De Verenigde Staten, 1936. Journalist Doremus Jessup verslaat de verkiezingscampagne van de xenofobe en haatzaaiende populist Berzelius 'Buzz' Windrip. In zijn allereerste campagneweek presenteert Windrip zijn verkiezingsbelofte: ieder gezin ontvangt $5000,- in step with jaar; vrouwen dienen terug te keren naar hun 'heilige plichten als huisvrouw'; Afro-Amerikanen mogen niet stemmen, een hogere opleiding dan de middelbare institution genieten of meer dan $10.000 according to jaar verdienen; Joden die weigeren 'trouw te zweren aan het Nieuwe testomony' mogen geen overheidsfuncties meer bekleden.
Wanneer Windrip met een overweldigende meerderheid van de stemmen tot president verkozen wordt, ontpopt zich al snel een fascistisch regime. Politieke tegenstanders worden opgesloten in concentratiekampen, dissidenten vluchten naar het buitenland en Mexico, Canada en delen van Zuid-Amerika dreigen op
gewelddadige wijze geannexeerd te worden. Jessup gelooft niet dat de situatie stand zal houden - of toch? In Dat gebeurt hier niet toonde Sinclair Lewis reeds in 1935 aan: het kan hier wél gebeuren.
