This hilarious documentary follows a tightly-run mayoral race in the small town of Bogota, New Jersey. When the much-reviled - and legally blind - Republican incumbent Steven Lonegan boldly announces he will run for re-election, the town citizens go on the offensive to unseat him. Enter Democrat Fred Pesce, coaxed from retirement. With his ailing health and politics akin to those of Tony Soprano, Fred leaves the field wide open for former local football hero Dave Musikant (also legally blind!) to step in as the long-shot independent candidate. With its quirky characters, dilapidated infrastructure and impassioned citizens, Bogota serves as the perfect backdrop for a behind-the-scenes look at a nation’s political heart.
