(The Believer from Massachusetts) and Nick (The Idealist from Pennsylvania) - three traditional boys who plan to continue leading their peers as President someday. Over three life-changing years, they split into Republican, Democratic and Independent camps as each reconsiders his lofty ambitions. Growing up at a critical moment for America as well, their lives also force us all to rethink our assumptions about tomorrow's leaders, the impact of 9/11 on them, and the political views of the millennial generation...which are more complex (and more conservative) than most people currently believe. As shocking as "Jesus Camp," as revealing as "American Teen," and as funny as "Spellbound" - FOLLOW THE LEADER is the true story of what change means for three young leaders who feel destined to lead the world.
