Graves is the story of former President of the United States, Richard Graves. Twenty years after his presidency, Graves has the epiphany that his policies have damaged the country for decades and so, with his young assistant, he goes on a Don Quixote-like journey to right his administration's wrongs just as his wife, the former First Lady, decides to follow her own political ambitions.
Expected to spend his retired years living quietly outside Santa Fe, NM, former President Richard Graves spins out into an existential crisis when he realizes that his White House's policies of 25 years ago have messed the country up and decides to go on a journey to right his administration's wrongs. Graves befriends bohemian waitress Sammy and drags his uptight new assistant Isaiah along as he goes off the grid and tries for the first time in his life to live in the present moment and be authentic. Meanwhile, Olivia Graves is having a breakdown of her own, shedding her picture perfect First Daughter persona after separating from her Rockefeller husband, as her mother – the ever-composed Margaret Graves – tries to keep her family's antics from drawing attention.
The family and staff unsuccessfully try to prevent Graves from finding out that his attempted assassin Martin Treadwell (while he was in the White House 25 years ago) is seeking a furlough to visit his dying mother. Graves attends his gardener's niece's quinceañera and becomes an advocate for the Mexican immigrant community. Margaret is approached by the Republican Party and invited to launch a Senate campaign, while Isaiah and Olivia get too close for (Isaiah's) comfort.
The family deals with the repercussions of Graves' unorthodox show of support for Mexican immigrants, and Graves encourages a federal bureaucrat to grant amnesty to a group of illegal immigrants who have sought refuge at his ranch.
Graves is forced to acknowledge that his views are on the wrong side of history as he reluctantly attends his speechwriter's marriage…to another man. Meanwhile, Olivia falls deeper in love with Arturo and Margaret gets a surprising call from an old friend with benefits, tech billionaire Jonathan Dalton. Isaiah tries to prep Jeremy for a local morning news show but he's more interested in throwing a party.
After learning his longtime friend and political ally ex-U.K. Prime Minister Trevor Lloyd is dying of cancer, Graves takes off to see him in Baltimore for one last adventure. Isaiah and Sammy join him, and Isaiah gets a peek behind the curtain when she takes him to visit her family. Olivia enlists Jeremy's help when she realizes she's in over her head with Arturo and Margaret finds herself falling into familiar patterns as she and Dalton strategize on her campaign.
Margaret arranges for a therapist to visit the Graves home; Jeremy intercepts a letter to the family asking if they would like to send someone to speak at Treadwell's furlough hearing; Olivia acts out, angry about her impending divorce.
Graves tries to rectify mistakes he made with Native American groups during his presidency; Isaiah's relationship with Sammy becomes collateral damage; Jeremy speaks at Treadwell's furlough hearing; Margaret assists Olivia in her divorce proceedings.
The family welcomes a TV news magazine's team into their home for a special on Graves' post-presidential life; Olivia discovers she's pregnant; Jeremy's career as a political commentator begins to heat up; Isaiah makes a decision about his future.
Graves travels across state lines to convince Isaiah to come back to his staff; Jeremy is offered his own TV show only to have Olivia call on him for help with a crisis; Margaret sets up her campaign office; Treadwell visits his mother.
Graves enlists Isaiah's help drafting a speech while trying to stifle rumors about Margaret's relationship with Jonathan Dalton; the FBI asks Olivia and Jeremy questions about their connection to Arturo; Treadwell escapes his security escort.
