The Contender
A political thriller that takes us behind the scenes of Washington's political power plays. When the current Vice President dies, the President appoints Senator Laine Hanson as the first woman to hold the office. The selection process is met with opposition, particularly from a powerful adversary who will stop at nothing to discredit her. As shocking secrets are revealed, a political firestorm is set off that threatens her personal life as well as her political career. Laine Hanson has what it takes to be Vice President, but does she have the stomach to get the job done? Rated R for strong sexual content and language.
