Synopsis

Can one man with a dream win the heart of the world's most powerful woman? This is a documentary like none you have seen before - the first musical docu-tragi-comedy in the history of cinema. Part Borat, part Fahrenheit 9/11, part Mamma Mia!, it follows a love-struck soul's hilarious, emotionally engaging, and ultimately shocking quest to woo former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
 
A spin on the Rapunzel fairy-tale, this unique romantic/political/biographic feature follows Devin Ratray, a portly website designer, musician, former child actor (famed as Buzz in Home Alone), and besotted admirer of Condi, as he prepares to meet her.
 
As Devin travels the country, learning more about the great lady from those who know her, Courting Condi tells the life story of one of our era's most inspiring, enigmatic, and controversial figures. This film is both timely and a classic love story, punctuated by timeless songs.
 
It's the first retrospective of the Bush Adminstration and will inspire audiences to laugh, sing and protest about the past eight years.
