Chosen

Synopsis:
A little girl from America's Heartland is commanded by God to rule the world. Well, not God exactly, an angel. Well, maybe not an angel, more of a ghost. But a famous ghost! Struggling to fulfill her destiny she goes to a radical college, has a career, a husband and a baby, toys with a wide variety of hairstyles (and headbands!), becomes a Democrat, a First Lady and a Senator. She's going to be leader of the world-free or otherwise. Why? Because it's what God wants. Inspired by the lives of Hillary Rodham Clinton and St. Bernadette of Lourdes, Chosen explores and satirizes politicians and their creation of modern myth in America.
