Wonder Boy for President

Somebody asked for change?

Wonder Boy for President
A South African political mockumentary, we follow a charismatic and authoritative young man from the Eastern Cape, who is coerced into running for president by two dubious and corrupt characters. Their aim is to mould him into a great politician and manufacture his down-fall at the right time, for the right price. It is a political satire that delves into political dynamics and the challenges that arise.
