Make America Great? “The Film | Dramedy
“It’s 2021, the beginning of the second term after the most anticipated Presidential election in 2016. The 13th and the 14th no longer exist.”
This film has a perceptive concept and will have you on the edge of your seat and waiting for what happens next, meanwhile laughing uncontrollably. This is a film that will demonstrate the thoughts of some in America right now during such a historic time.
The story of this film is that minorities have become illegal Aliens in an attempt to throw all disenfranchised groups in concentration camps, separating them from normal society as we know it. In Los Angeles, we meet a small group of runaways hiding out in an abandoned church debating how to get out the country. While the tone is overly dramatic and comical, it is through their conversations we learn about each character struggles with identity and self-acceptance. Although they butt heads in the beginning they ultimately form a bond of unity to survive.
