Ally (Sarah Paulson) and Ivy Mayfair-Richards (Alison Pill) are a gay couple living with their son Oz (Cooper Dodson) in Brookfield Heights, Michigan. Ally suffers from many diseases such as fear of clowns, fear of holes and fear of blood. She is a patient of psychiatrist Dr. Rudy Vincent (Cheyenne Jackson).
Kai, Winter and Rudy Vincent are three brothers in the Anderson family. The events in the family caused their mother to shoot her husband and commit suicide. The three brothers tried to hide their parents' bodies in the house. While Rudy continues to live a normal life, Kai has another conspiracy when forming a secret society full of clowns, attracting bored and desperate people in Brookfield Heights to join.
After the "unthinkable" election in 2016, the victory of Donald Trump created strong conditions for Kai's secret society to grow up. The secret society began to spread fear throughout Brookfield Heights to help Kai get into politics. However, Kai gradually revealed his cruelty to those under him.
The activities of the secret society quickly involved many people in the area and the Mayfair-Richards family was no exception. As the influence begins to take its toll on her family, life, and especially Oz, Ally is forced to rise above herself to protect her son and herself.
