Election

High achieving academic student Tracy Flick is about to run for student government president at Carver High School in Omaha, Nebraska. Jim McAllister is the history and civics teacher, and Tracy is just the kind of overachieving annoying student he particularly hates, however it isn’t until his life goes downhill that he truly turns on the attack. After failing to have an affair with a friend who then tells his wife, Jim is out on his own and has nothing to loose. With the election coming up, and Tracy looking like a clear winner, Jim intervenes by encouraging popular student Paul Metzler to run for president. At the same time Paul is dating his sisters old girlfriend which causes her to run for president against him also. Everything comes down to a vote count, but when Jim goes to far everything unwinds into a collective mess.
