Earnest twenty-two year old Souverain Pascal, a student of democracy and a recent arrival to Canada from his native Port-au-Prince, Haiti, is able to secure an internship with the only Canadian Member of Parliament (MP) who responded to his request for work, Steve Guibord of the northern, sprawling and largely rural Québec riding of Prescott - Makedewá - Rapides-aux-Outardes, he the only sitting Independent in what is now the Conservative Party majority Parliament, albeit a majority with the slimmest of margins. Steve's situation, with no party backing, makes him arguably the most ignored MP in the House, with his constituency office above a lingerie shop, which is only accessible through that shop, a manifestation of what little resources he has to conduct his political work.

One day a young Haitian writes letters to all the Canadian Members of Parliament hoping to find someone who will take him on as an intern. His only response comes from Monsieur Guibord, sitting as an Independent, and representing a large remote area of the province of Quebec. The situation turns to chaos and hilarity quickly, when the Prime Minister calls for a vote on an important issue, and Monsieur Guibord's vote is going to make or break the decision. Guibord decides to look to the citizens in his riding to gauge their opinions - and everybody has one !! This being an election year in Canada, this film couldn't have been released at a better time. It takes a serious look at the business of politics, and yet never becomes heavy-handed. If you get the opportunity to see this film, please do so. It is excellent value for the ticket price.
