Description

"A balls-to-the-wall phantasmagoria of maple syrup soaked ridiculousness."- That Shelf

"Possibly the craziest and most unique biopic ever made." - Slash Film

"An absorbing visual delight." - Toronto

Toronto, 1899. Aspiring young politician Mackenzie King dreams of becoming the Prime Minister of Canada. But his romantic vacillation between a British soldier and a French nurse, exacerbated by a fetishistic obsession, may well bring about his downfall. In his quest for power, King must gratify the expectations of his imperious Mother, the hawkish fantasies of a war-mongering Governor-General, and the utopian idealism of a Quebecois mystic before facing one, final test of leadership. Culminating in an epic battle between good and evil, King learns that disappointment may be the defining characteristics of the twentieth century.
