Tracy Flick is running unopposed for this year’s high school student election. But Jim McAllister has a different plan. Partly to establish a more democratic election, and partly to satisfy some deep personal anger toward Tracy, Jim talks football player Paul Metzler to run for president as well.

“‘Election’ is the satire of the season, a hilarious, razor-sharp indictment of the American Dream.” ~ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
