Description
Fiery US government teacher Remi Covington is relentless in her desire to impart the genius of the democratic process to her students. Her so-called academically challenged high school seniors sometimes find her enthusiasm more than a little annoying so, in an effort to teach her a lesson, they execute a brazen, high-tech, social media blitz touting her as the newest candidate in the upcoming US presidential race. Much to everyone's surprise, Remi plays along with her students ruse and in a nation weary of politics and career politicians, she unexpectedly finds herself the darling of the American public. As the campaign takes on a life of its own, Remi is forced to confront a myriad of long-held social biases and cultural cliches, and realizes she isn t quite the woman she thought was. Vote for Remi is about a would-be a presidential candidate who, despite being all wrong the wrong gender, the wrong party, and certainly the wrong social status discovers that she might be exactly what America needs: someone with a passion for doing what is right.
