Writer/director Doug Atchison tells the tale of a teacher from Reno, NV, who accepted her sixth-grade class's challenge to run for Congress in 2000 under the condition that the students would take charge of the campaign. Halle Berry plays middle-school educator Tierney Cahill, a single mother whose adoring students eventually convince her to run for Congress. Though the beloved teacher-turned-political hopeful would eventually lose her bid to an incumbent, Cahill shocked both her district and her loyal supporters by taking home 35 percent of the popular vote. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
